Macro lens for old photos and negatives

I currently have a D810 with a 24-85mm lens.  I'd like to set up a rig with a proper copy stand.  If I shoot a 35mm slide, it fills about 1/4 of my frame with the lens I have.  A 3x5 print will almost fill my frame, but I want to be able to capture down to the film grain.

I'd like to have a 1:1 ratio.  Should I buy a macro lens? If so, which one? Or, should I use my existing lens with some sort of adapter (e.g. bellows or teleconverter)?

Assume lighting is not a concern.
