A fisheye is a one trick pony. The recommended Rokinon is good value. Colors are wonderful and it is sharp across the frame. But fisheye can get tiresome after a while. Whereas a wide angle is good for many things, and doesn't become tiresome in the same way.

I think an UWA is a similar one trick pony, also has a peculiar perspective (a WA zoom is more useful, but there are fish zooms too). Pick which one you find more useful, or carry both. Software conversions are possible, but have side effects.
