I looked forward to having a large aperture portrait lens for taking top-down photos of climbers from above.

dude, you just have GAS - you can perfectly take top down photos of your fellow climbers w/ the light 45/1.8 and save some weight for other things... but if your GAS is so itching then just get Fuji and quit whining.
