The 135mm STF was not made as an uber shallow DOF lens.

It was not made to be used stopped down either.

As far as the 200/2 lenses. When these lenses were designed, the intention of that extra stop was not for achieving even less DOF. It was for getting a faster shutter speed in low lighting situations. These lenses were designed for sports shooters and photojournalists.

But that's not who bought most of them - the DOF is too shallow for tracking AF to be useful.  Who did buy these lenses? Wedding photographers in Japan and Korea.
