I don't understand what use case this lens is supposed to satisfy. Don't most macro shooters want a longer focal length?

People used to do just fine with macro photography using the AI/AIS 55 f2.8 on a 35mm (now full frame) DSLR. Multiply 40 by 1.5 and get back to the class with the equivalent FOV focal length. Strangely similar, isn't it?
