    LCD preview.

    How many even use the 'Stop-down' button function of their cameras anymore? Just shoot and review on LCD.

    You mean the DOF preview button? IMHO it's kinda hard to see if everywhere is in focus through viewfinder.

    Don't need it. Most DSLR's have a DOF preview button on their camera's now which makes it even better for visual fine tuning.

    Well, now it's called a DOF preview or button. I am old man lah, so last time on film cameras it was called a 'stop-down preview' button because you use that button or lever to stop the lens down and get a preview of what the DOF may look like. Different name same thing.

    But on modern DSLRs unless you use a FF bod, it's very difficult to judge what is in or out of focus through the viewfinder, so shooting a few test shots and previewing them on an LCD screen or a portable DVD player is more accurate. Still better is previewing on laptiop screen, but with DVD player or lappy, it becomes very leceh.
