Old MF macro lenses

In this forum there are many excellent images made with m4/3 cameras and Canon FD 50/3.5 macro lens.

I'm wondering if anybody has experience with other old macro lenses. Pretty much all manufacturers made similar ones. At f3.5 they are slow and thus reasonably small and cheap. All of them are 0.5 macro.

Canon made FD 50/3.5
Konica - 50/3.5
Olympus - 50/3.5
Pentax - 50/4
Nikon seemed to have made several.
I believe Olympus' one is the smallest (as usual).

The specs I was able to find:
