    I don't think you fully realize what these two things do. One is a tilt shift lens, which puts parts of your image out of focus, and the other is a wide angle converter, which sits on top of a regular lens and makes it a wider angle.

    It's like you're asking us whether it's better to buy a pickup truck or a hockey stick. They're totally different things.

    hahaha yeah i know i like the lensbaby because its got a great way to play around with different views but i also want a fish eye lense but cant afford a good one. just looking for an opinion i guess. and also to see if anyone knows if the fish eye is any good.

    I'd say neither unless you are really seeking one. Both have very limited uses.
