One of the reasons to use the 45mm, as I often read, is that if doing a head and shoulders shot, the FoV the 45mm gives is the minimum you should use, as it is the shortest length that doesn't distort the face, when doing that specific FoV. If you're planning to do those kind of portraits, it's worth it. You don't need to be that far from a person for it either; even for head to torso shots I'm pretty certain you can manage in most standard sized rooms.
