"RE: Need help understanding the depth of field preview button"

While the DOF preview button was important when shooting film in some instances, it's all but obsolete in digital. I typically assign the button to some other useful function. For a DOF preview, I shoot a picture and chimp on the LCD to decide on DOF and aperture settings. It's far easier to see on the LCD than in a very dim viewfinder at small apertures.
