In principle yes, but in practice not really. The reality if that if you stop
the lens down, what you see is at best an odd version of your picture where the
things that should be in focus in the final print will be, but where everything
else is out of whack. Everything is darker than it will be on the film, details
are lost, and really checking focus becomes hard without putting a jacket over
your head.

I wouldn't call this WYSIWYG.
