fish-eye adapter only distort picture. why would it make picture quality inferior? it is like saying macro adapter will make picture also inferior. so I not agree with your notion.

A fisheye adpater will definitely an inferior solution compared to an actual fisheye lens, just as a macro adapter (diopter lenses) will produce worse image quality compared to a macro lens. The angle of view will probably not be as wide as the fisheye, image will be softer overall at least to some degree, there will be more corner softness, CA, flare, probably reduced contrast, etc. I'm not saying that they can't be used or that they are completely useless, but I must disagree, when you say an adapter or processing would be better than the real thing.

12-24mm with fish-eye adapter or fish-eye effect processing is better my opinion.

You can google for some fisheye adapter tests like this:
