The 45/1.8 has a field that curves towards the camera at the edges, increasing the background blur. This is a plus if your composition has background at edges, e.g. a portrait, but may be undesireable in other compositions.

17/1.8 has similar problem, not that sharp on the sides with visible field curvature.
one more option for 42.5/1.8 - YI lens: cheap, sharp, good for close ups.
