I didn't see anyone say that it is "impossible for DOF preview to be 
useful".  Perhaps I missed that original post you are referring to.  That 
statement (impossible...) is, of course, absurd.  DOF preview certainly IS 
useful, and as you say, has served photographers well....

This feels like a change of subject...from "anyone who doesn't do it my way 
is a dolt" to "I was defending the use of DOF preview"....

er, well, it's pretty much what you tell someone when they have a differing 
opinion to yours...and apparently I'm not the only one who reads it that 

Oh well, I think this one's about had it....kicking it any more will just 
jam your toe...
