Post Focusing issue OMD em5

Hi I'm a new member
Ive had an E520 for many years always produced wonderful pin sharp photos.
However it always struggled in poor light.I'm on a tight budget.

Earlier this year I bought a 2nd hand Pentax K5ii at a really good price,its superb even with old manual K fit lens always very sharp good exposure with all lens.
A few weeks ago I bought a OMD EM5 with a MMF3 adaptor thinking it would be a big improvement over my E520.The body was on sale from SRS at 299.
Now I have to say I've tried numerous settings but I just cannot get good results with Zuiko 4/3 lens on new body any where near as good as old E520.
I've tried 9-18mm ,14-54 mk1, and SWD 50-200.Lens always seem to hunt for focus and pictures just not sharp.I bought a Sigma 60mm 2.8 lens and that works perfectly.
Has anybody any ideas as I'm getting very frustrated.
