This is a straight forward question, one that can only be answered by those who have the experience with the equipment.

Which has the better quality, EF 8-15mm fisheye on Crop Frame DSLRs or the EF 16-35mm II on Full Frame DSLRs ?

I have used the 16-35, but not the Fisheye, but I can tell you for sure, they are entirely different lenses regardless of crop or full-frame. A straight comparison in terms of fields of view, look at the EF-S 10-22mm versus the 16-35L. The Fisheye has a much different purpose and field of view/distortion effect than the other lenses. The 10-22 isn't a full-frame lens but it is quite good when you stop it down. The 16-35 is definitely very good optically, and gets better when you stop down a bit.

I have seen sample pics of the 8-15mm on crop frame, on both Gordon's reviews and other sites, i like distortion at ends that wide, especially if its crop frame I am using it on.

The distortions give me a real sense of scale as Iif I am turing left to right watching a barrel wide angle distortion.

All I want to know about is image quality, I have no intention of buying the sigma's 10-20mm lenses nor canon's 10-22mm lenses.
