Why a 58mm instead of an 85mm f/0.95 or a 135mm f/1.2?

Why a 58mm instead of an 85mm f/0.95 or a 135mm f/1.2?

I'm curious what you guys think is the thought-process behind Nikon releasing a 58mm to show off f/0.95 -- instead of an 85 f/0.95?  Does anyone really love 58mm?  What commercial work seems centered around 58mm?

Would a 30mm f/0.95 have been better, or an 85 f/0.95, either with AF?

Which focal lengths do you think Nikon should release in f/1.2?

Just curious your personal feelings.  I still think its a neat lens.
