Taking you at your word that it is either the 45 or 75, and assuming that you are able to handle the extra 6 ounces and $500, definitely get the 75.  I have both and like the 45 a lot, but the 75 is really something special, and the 45 is too close to your 12-40 in FOV.

The 75 will give you good reason to switch from your 12-40 from time to time, but it would probably be a rare subject that would make it worthwhile to switch from the 12-40 to the 45.
