Is the Sony 50mm f/1.8 for Nex Cameras Good for Portrature Photos?

I'm planning on purchasing a Sony a7iii, and I'm considering the Sony 50mm f/1.8 Mid-Range Lens for Sony E Mount Nex Cameras.  It sells for about $350.  I'm thinking I can use this at 50mm, then place the camera in 35mm (crop mode) to get 75mm.  Does that sound like a reasonable plan?  Then I'd have 50mm and almost 85mm for portraits.

One thing that I found confusing is this comment about "losing the full frame size".  The a7iii is a full frame camera, any idea what they are referring to?

"I am using this with a Sony A7iii, so I am losing the full frame size but I dont miss it in the slightest."
