This sounds like the normal outcome of the wide angle shooting. All fixed lenses have some distortion at the wide angle, especially less than 35mm. In order to compensate you will need to zoom in a little.to reduce the distortion. I know that's not the answer you want, but unfortunately this is the result of trying to accomodate the zoom range of the camera. This type of camera does not warrant the best of lenses due to the price range, so there is little that can be done to correct this.
I'd love it if someone can prove me wrong and has a better solution for you.

I did find an ok solution. Using Photoshop's Len Correction utility, I applied -6 to the Geometric Distortion slider and that seemed help. Maybe not perfect, but good enough more my and my family's needs.
I'll try a tiny bit of zoom and see how that affects things as well.
Thanks for your advice!
