It's not just the 'stretching' from distortion correction...

You know that "stretching" in the corners is normal to get a rectilinear image at very wide angles, right?   It doesn't matter whether this is done in software or by the optical design - you can't have straight lines appearing straight and also have a very wide field of view without corner stretching.   Without that stretching you get lesser or greater degrees of barrel distortion which, if you go to the extreme, gives you a fisheye lens.
