do you think 15mm (24mm) will still give the fish eye look on my croped sensor?

You will get a cropped fisheye image, simple as that. Field of view becomes approximately 112 degrees instead of the 180 degrees you would get on full frame. The centre part of the image appears less distorted so you don't get such a strong 'fisheye look'.

The answer to your original question is look at the Sigma 8 mm, or for a much lower price (but manual focus and aperture) the Samyang 8 mm.

The 10mm Sigma is for crop frame filling.

The 8mm is for FF, circular.

Are we Mixing lenses up here? The Sigma 8mm is FF cicular. Then there is a bunch of Samyand/Rokinon/Bower options. Looks like one Rokinon is for crop only and doesn't have a removable hood. And then this one can be used on both being cicular on FF and has a removable hood.

Actually, just noticed that Samyang has a CSII version of the lens with removable hood.
