EF-M 28mm macro vs EF-S 60 macro


Does anyone have both?, do you use them interchangeably or select one for specific tasks ?

I have the s60 but and my biggest issue is probably lighting / diffusion, so I'm intrigued by the capabilities of the m28 with its inbuilt lights.

I assume its IS and much smaller size comes in handy too

I looked at the samples provided in the EF-M 28mm macro - Post your PHOTOS!  thread but few talk about the experience of using the lens, many are using it as  general purpose travel lens whereas I'm more interested in its macro capabilities. Its also a rather quiet thread which suggests its not an overly used lens (or perhaps your using the macro forum instead)

So from a macro point how useful are the lights ?, do you use this with or without flash for best results ? do the find the IS useful for handheld macro ?

A couple of recent examples of what I'm taking at the moment with the s60, would the m28 just be similar or offer improvements ?
