I think, both of them are correct.

There is a small typo in the second sentence, "nich" instead of nicht

They are both correct (except for the typo in the second sentence).

The main difference is that the second sentence uses a subordinate clause to describe what we think. But there really is no difference in meaning - it's just two different ways to express the idea. The first sentence may sound a bit more elegant, because it's shorter.

There are no difference in the meaning, so you can use whichever you like the best :)

both correct. no difference in meaning. the second one is more formal. so whats what you would say if you are are trying to look like an educated person. the first one would be more of everyday use. whats all.
