Jeff,

What I was saying was I could hardly call out a feature that is as trivial as having the DOF marking on a lens barrel as a reason to buy or not buy a camera. Especially since experience would surely teach you for each lens where your zone focus would be at any given aperture, and that the markings themselves are just approximations to begin with. But to each their own.

Just pointing out that the new Fuji lenses are focus by wire, not real manual focus, and have neither DoF scales nor focus markings. The only way you can see the focal distance is by looking at the display. Zone focus becomes tricky when you have to check a LCD monitor every time you want to change it.
