I have always thought people buy them because of an extra element they have.
What kinf of focus will you get? Thats what teenage photogs do: shoot a normal lens wide open. Adult people buy themselves 135/2.0 to achieve the sought-for effect.
Why would I buy a lens I cannot use wide open? The extra element is ostensibly so they work properly at maximum aperture. You have some funny ideas, I think.
135 is a focal length I've found is either too long or too short. A 105 is as long as I use in 35mm.
