Also, no pixels are lost, since the raw file has the full uncropped image; only the jpegs are cropped. (Speaking for GRii.)

I’m pretty much sure that’s incorrect. I’ll need to check this tomorrow.

DNGs definitely cropped on my GR2.

It must depend on the raw editor. In DxO Photolab, which is what I mostly use, the GR2 DNG files are most definitely the full uncropped 28mm field of view, even when the JPEGs are set to cropped (before taking the shot).

If you view the DNG with most viewers, as opposed to editors, they will just show the attached cropped jpeg preview file (that is part of the DNG file).

I vaguely remember Capture One showing the DNGs as cropped, but I'm not going to fire up my old version to check that now since it always breaks something.
