E-3 or new lense for E-1 for close ups?

I have had my E-1 for about a year now and an gradually increasing my knowledge as I had olympus point and shoot cameras before the E-1.
I am interested in close ups of insects and flowers, and with a limited budget, my question is to improve the sharpness of the shots should I invest in a second hand E-3 or opt for a better lense for the E-1.

At the moment I have an Olympus zuiko digital 35mm 1:3.5 macro lense with a thin Sigma achromatic lense which screws on the front.

I have a tripod and remote button for the camera, camera shake is not the problem.
The E-1 has taken 2,281 shots, if the E-3 would give an improvement I would get one but as the E-1 is in such immaculate condition I would be happy if a better lense would give the same result.

If another lense is advisable perhaps someone would advise the exact make and type as I consider myself a novice
Thank You
