Zoom or fisheye?

ZOOM or Fisheye? Which photo gives more or more interesting informations?
Focused on one detail only or introducing the whole, complete situation?

If subtlety is a magnifying glass,
then joke a reduction glass.
Do you believe,
that discoveries only could made
by a magnifying glass?

summary by frizztext:
To reduce the size of an idol
by a diminishing glass
sometimes makes wise again ...
Wenn Scharfsinn ein Vergrößerungsglas ist,
so ist der Witz ein Verkleinerungsglas (concave lens).
Glaubt ihr denn,
dass sich bloß Entdeckungen
mit Vergrößerungsgläsern machen ließen?
G.C. Lichtenberg 1742-1799 (D 465)
