I have lots of old film slides. When I bought the 30mm macro lens I attempted to use the EM5 to copy some slides on a light box. It was a sort of semi-dilligent effort. Anyway, the results were not very satisfactory in my opinion - the contrast increased quite a bit and really if I wanted to make it better I would need a copy stand and better Lightbox. The slides themselves have seen better days and have bits of fungus growth on some. Anyway here are two old favorites. The first one is of the Ausable river in the Adirondack mountains of New York State. It is also a famous easter trout stream if there are any anglers out there. This second one (Portland Head Light) was popular when I tried to sell prints. It was cropped somewhat when copied so it really doesn't do it justice. anyway, check them out.

So, some dust particles, but apart from that and some "built in imperfections" of the slide film media itself, these I find quite impresssive.

Especially they do look very detailed. You must have used a very sharp lens and also one of the better slide films to achieve this.  Well done, and shows the little 30mm (Olympus?) macro to be quite a bit of good glass, too.
