Why 75mm?

OK, so the lens has awesome quality.  So what?  Why 75mm? For what is it useful?

75mm is effectively 150mm.  It's too long for a portrait lens and too short for a tele lens.  Every instance where that focal length would be useful, I would see a zoom as a much better option for better framing.  While a zoom may not be as sharp, if you have to crop in post to get good framing, you lose that advantage.

I don't get it.  Why 75mm fixed?
