RF 85/2 macro vs 24-105mm STM for "macro" use

I know that the 85 has many virtues in terms of flexibility and use as a portrait lens - but given that it has a maximum magnification ratio of 0.5x, I wonder if its performance at macro shooting is significantly (enough) better than the humble plastic 24-105mm STM zoom (which I think on paper has a maximum magnification ratio of 0.4x)?

Since for macro shooting i'm typically using apertures in the f/8-16 range, i'm curious whether anyone who has both lenses has noticed a big quality improvement on the prime?

Thanks in advance for any input!
