I rented the 75mm for a recent trip.  It's an interesting focal length to work with.  You really do need some distance between you and your subject.  This is a WAG, but I'd say the best portraits were obtained from something like 20-30 feet away.  The lens is wonderfully sharp and gives nice subject isolation.  I don't have access to the original of this picture from this computer, so please excuse the crappy Facebook copy with all its compression and artifacts.  Nevertheless, you can see what the lens can do for candid portraits.  Good stuff.  If I had $900 to burn, I'd buy it.

I can afford the USD 900, but want to make a conscious decision... Don´t want to buy it and leave it aside, using the 45mm instead (which I already have)...

Great pic, BTW!
