I don't get why the 45 is considered such a bargain. It covers a much smaller image circle than a FF nifty-fifty, but costs three times as much.

It's because a lot of people use lenses to take photos, and not so much for doing comparisons with other lens mounts. I could list the ways the 45 is superior to the 50mm lenses, but it's really irrelevant: the lenses have completely different angles of view, and the comparison is of no practical interest for actual photography.
