Do you want all your pictures to be circular and distorted? If so, get the fisheye. If not, get the 17-55.

Unless you have a kit setup and this is a fun lens to supliment it I would got the 17-55 route, I think your find it a lot more useable.

You want either the 17-55 or one of the "10-20" variants (Sigma, Canon, Tokina)

A 15mm fish is not wide enough for a crop....which is why Canon announced the 8-15mm fisheye.
