I'm surprised nobody (even the guys who used to run film regularly) haven't pointed out the exposier sample button on the body of the cameras...

it's by no means a perfect sample that it gives, but it can give you an idea if you are shooting a bit dark or narrow on depth of feild.

It's a good tool for someone who might be learning, if you don't want to rely on the light meter 100% especially since the light meter doesn't show DOF where the sample button can.
