Used Olympus 75mm or brand new Sigma 56mm

My daughter is growing up way too fast and I try to save some memories whenever possible. My current setup is consists of a Panasonic GX80, kit zoom and the 25mm prime.

I'm looking at adding another lens to the collection as I'm facing two "issues":

  • I'm close enough to make her reach for the camera. I've got plenty of images of her hands by now.
  • The subject separation / background blur is not up to par.

I've done some reading and believe the Olympus 75mm F1.8 and the Sigma 56mm F1.4 are good options. Both are the same price if I consider getting the 75mm secondhand.

Anyone got some input on these two? Are there any other options I should consider?
