But it doesn't work well for beginners, or frankly most amateur photographers. And, you pay a lot of $$ for it. If a beginner can't really make use of it, what is the point of spending all that $$?

Yes...but - Having gone out and bought such a lens the first thing I would suggest to anyone (beginner or otherwise) is run a few tests shots and make sure it is usable wide open - for when you need it.

Absolutely.  Albeit with a crop camera one of my first shots with the nifty-fifty whilst waiting for the bus home after buying it.  I would hope for at least as good with a better lens.  I also then got quite good results indoors of portraits but it all came to a sad end when it must have got covered by a napkin at a celebration meal and I have seen it since.
