I don't think anyone should be considering a 75 for portraits before a 45.  The 75 has shallower DoF, less CA, forces you to move further away and costs a fortune.  
However, if you have a 45 and sometimes want shallower DoF, or you want a fast shortish tele, and don't mind the price, it seems pretty good so far.

Its a good portrait.

I`ve been very tempted by the 75mm, but I`d probably wait to see what this new Sigma 60mm will be like, read it should be available for about £180.
