# prime field element constructor does not accept lists of size one

Let p be prime. Elements of

```
field = GF(p)
```

can be constructed as

```
field(x)
```

If n>1, elements of

```
field = GF(p**n)
```

can be constructed as

```
field([x1, x2, ..., xn])
```

This would suggest that for n=1

```
field([x1])
```

should work and return the same as

```
field(x1)
```

However Sage replies with the following traceback

```
>>> GF(5)([3])

Is this intentional or a bug? (tested on SageMath version 9.0, Release Date: 2020-01-01 on Kubuntu 20.04)
