That is indeed correct! The whole point is to stay as further as possible, thus capturing the whole body or the torso. I guess the 50mm is best for whole body portraits.

Old time 50mm lenses ( the normal ones) were excellent for portraiture because of shallow depth of field and incredible details, but you had to have a torso image and not just a head shot.
