Do any of you actually use the DOF Preview button?

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.
