If so, how has it helped you? And please be specific how you use it, because to me this button is as worthless as the Direct Print button. No matter which lens I use, what I focus on, and what aperture I set, pressing the DOF button either (at least seemingly) does nothing at all, or it makes the image in the viewfinder go dark. I never see the depth of field change.

If it matters, I've had this experience on my 5D and my 350D.

Thanks in advance for any responses.
