Legacy FD macro lens comparison

I did a quick round of comparison shots with four different FD macro lenses (three true macro lenses and one regular with close up filters) shooting one bit of one of my "new" cameras (bonus points for guessing the camera).

The lenses are Vivitar 55mm Macro 2.8, Canon 50mm Macro 3.5 (with extension tube for 1:1), Canon 50mm 1.8 with stacked +4 and +2 diopter close-up filters, and Vivitar 90mm Macro 2.8.
