You might check out a couple of the fisheye threads.

The fisheye is a unique lens - nothing else like it. But, you have to know how to use it...

If you are thinking about "defishing" the fisheye, I'd recommend something else. It is like having a macro lens, then never getting closer than 3 feet from your subject :-0

Sweet! Thanks for the heads up on the threads. The only reason I mentioned defishing a shot was because I was sort of rationalizing in my head that I could still get rectilinear-ish shots from the 10-17mm FE whereas I wouldnt really be able to, or want to, get FE shots on the 10-20mm Sigma UWA.

I think I'll just pull the trigger on the 10-17, what the hell, it's only $500 bucks or so.

Thanks for helping me make my decison, Ill update with pics when I get it.
