Reading, thnaks.
So you did not miss-type the 37.. it is a different animal, restrictive view.
I would say you need both.
Ambrotype... are you looking at larger than 35mm. In that case as I read your post these lenses are for 35mm only.

If you are looking at 4x5 get a cheap Xenar to get started with... what part of the world are you in?
