8mm fish on 1.6x crop VS 15mm fish on FF

Anyone know how these two compare?

I got fed up of having to crop most of the photos i'm taking with my 8mm fish on my 400d so have ordered the canon 15mm fish! I also intend to upgrade to full frame in the near future...

Should i keep the 8mm for extreme fishyness or flog it for some extra cash?

p.s. has everyone seen the 1DS MKIII? :o) and the 40D at long last!

The 15mm FF fish won't be very "fishy" on a DX crop camera, but if you're going to upgrade to a FF camera (5D?) then you may as well flog the 8mm if you don't like the circular fisheye lenses.

It'll still be fishy? i.e. not square field of view, but will cover 22-23mm instead of 12.
