SQL vs native filemaker

I've noticed more and more developers using SQL in Filemaker.

Is there an advantage to using SQL to just doing everything in native Filemaker?  I've been developing with Filemaker for about 15 years now and I can't see the need to use it.  I can see that people with experience in SQL might turn to it for there needs, but for an experienced Filemaker developer who knows there way around Filemakers relational model is there any benefit?  Does it cut down on development times?  Is there a performance gain in some circumstances? Or is it about structure and readability?


If there is a benefit to SQL could I please have some examples?
