Question about Olympus macro lenses?????

Since I still have 4/3's cameras and have no AF macro lens I was thinking of getting the older Zuiko 35mm f3.5 and use it on both the 4/3's cameras and my E-M5II camera via the 4/3 to m4/3 adapter. I do have a Yashica 60mm f 2.8 Macro (Tomioka)  m42 lens and a Tamron SP 90mm f2.5 macro I can use on the 4/3 cameras if need be.  Now for the question.  Just how much better is the image quality of the 30mm f3.5 M.Zuiko over the older Zuiko 35mm f3.5 4/3?  I'm talking mainly sharpness etc..  I'm not really concerned with AF speed or other nonrelated image quirks.  I sure would be easier if I could just get one AF macro for both cameras and a lot cheaper too.

Thanks, John
