VERY Nice DxO Option.."Wider-er"
2

Using DxO on at least RX100V arw files, try this.

Geometry, Distortion...uncheck the maintain aspect ratio option.

You still get the distortion correction (better than what the JPEGs get in-camera) but can get a usefully wider shot.

About 8-9% more pixels in the side to side or Horizontal direction. Same Height.

JPEG from Sony camera: 5472 x 3648 pixels, 19,961,856 total (same as Sony specifies)

ARW Raw from Sony Camera, std DxO: 5472 x 3648 pixels, 19,961,856 total (same as above)

ARW Raw from DxO, correct distortion but unchecked Maintain Aspect Ratio box:

5972 x 3648 pixels, 21,785,856  (+9% on width and total megapixels)

Just click and watch your images from the lens "become" a few mm wider.

No vignetting concerns, but any filter setup will need to be tweaked.   I had to cut down the rim on a polarizer on my lathe to get my corners happy when running extra-wide.
