Both lenses are very good quality but anyone serious about portrait work would not choose between those two lenses between a small size difference but would base their choice on the BIG difference in focal length

Unless one shoots mostly head and shoulders portrait there is no doubt that the FOV of the Nocticron is MUCH BETTER suited to portrait work


Yeah I find the 42.5mm FL to be more versatile but I wanted more separation , esp for full body shots than I was getting with the 42.5 f1.7 but my subsequently acquired 75mm was harder to work with. The Sigma is a good compromise, esp for the price.

I still wouldn't sell my 75 though because I still use it for night events etc where the fact its my fastest long lens is an asset.
