ok i have to make another post since iam unable to insert two pics in one post... As you see in the first picture an eyeball i created quickly 
And here is the magnified size : note i could insert a picture of my room in the reflectiion on the iris and it would be still visable if you zoomed in there is no way i could do something like this in photoshop without having pixel nuggets everywhere
So that is the reason ...

Illustrator is vector based. Photoshop is bitmap based.

Illustrator is perfect for logo's, icons, printed material because it can be scaled larger or smaller without loss of quality.

Photoshop is perfect for computer images, photo manipulations and computer content. It's also fine for icons too but some prefer Illustrator.

I just wanted to post it so that people knew why too without a demonstration

Sure but you can work with vectors in Photoshop also, still the vectors will be pixelated when you make the finished image but you can get a little more detail than usual depending on angle you can work with 1/2 pixel if you use vectors in PS... also i like the pen tool much more in illustrator since you can adjust the path later on dont know if photoshop can do that also in such an easy way.

I think Adobe should really go to work on the Vector tool in Ps. It is a major pita as it currently is and requires hours of training to use properly. Based on the popularity of vector based images and their wide usage, I'm rather surprised this hasn't happened already.

Btw, if anyone wants a good starter tutorial on this ancient tool -

Thanks for the video Doc.
The pen tool isnt as great in PS as it is in Illustrator and i dont understand why.. If i use the pen tool in illustrator and i make a curve ( you will end up having 2 handles one on the right and one on the left of the ankor point now i can simply click on the anker point again to delete the handle i dont want but the curve i created will stay the same and i can continue with the pen tool without affect of the handle that had just been deleted, sadly photoshop doesnt offer that. But still a good video nonless
