The Sigma is only 1 stride back from the 42.5 compared to the 75's 3, but I'm getting similar performance. I was worried about the focusing performance on my G9 but it was impeccable.

Thank you for this chart.  When I do indoor portraits, I seldom have more than 4 meters of space to work with.  I currently use my Oly 4/3 14-35mm f2 to handle these situations, which allows full-length portraits.  When I have more room, especially outdoors, I like my Oly 4/3 35-100mm f2 zoom  I shoot both wide open.  Quite lovely.  I have rented 25mm f1.2 and 45mm f1.2 lenses; both are really excellent.  But I'm afraid the lack of zoom limits my work with them.   I also think that my comments are probably not that relevant to this discussion.
