Macro photography? Portraits with shallow DOF...to check what is in
focus or not?

By the time the aperture stops down to any meaningful level for macro, the viewfinder would be so dark with DOF preview you cannot see a thing. As to portrait, with enough experience, one should have a good idea how certain focal length/aperture/distance should produce what kind of DOF.

Kinda handy really........not hard to do either. Major point here
is you dont have to use these features.......its a choice.......but
if it isnt there...you cannot use it.......simple as that.

Indeed.
