Help Me Decide: UWA lens vs. GoPro

I can assure you, I am not suffering from GAS (Gear Acquisition Syndrome) nor I am going to suffer into that at all. I just think that this is the time to own a new gear for my photography. The fact is, I have not bought a camera gear (lens, body, flash. excluding accessories) since October of last year. 



Why GoPro? 

1. I can have an additional camera with wide angle view that takes videos too. 

2. It can take timelapse photos for me without straining my dslr shutter actuators.

3. As a second camera, it is very light to carry along compared to an Ultra Wide Angle lens. 

4. I can always carry it with me and I don’t have to worry if I leave my dslr as it can take good quality photos too plus the fact that with a case, it’s waterproof.  



Why UWA (Ultra Wide Angle) lens? 

1. It is really a must when taking landscapes like what i love to shoot considering I use a cropped body sensor dslr camera (nikon d5100). This lens allow me to capture a wider landscape on my frame. The wider the lens field of view, the more I can capture from the whole scene without getting back far. This helps when the subject is too close and you are restricted to in moving back due to some reasons.
