Thoughts on M.ZUIKO ED 30MM F3.5 MACRO?

For someone who has no macro lens at all, is this a decent lens for dabbling in macro photography, especially for $230?  30mm seems pretty short for a macro lens and F3.5 seems slow for any prime lens but how does it perform?  Would you consider this a good value lens or am I just better off saving the money for something better?  This would be used on a Panasonic GX9.
