DOF calculator in-camera?

This is something that was discussed a while back as a feature Sony should add to E-mount cameras.

Just now I was reading a review/preview of the nearly 20 year old Maxxum/Dynax 7. In that camera, when you engage DOF preview with an ADI lens, the LCD shows a diagram and estimation of DOF in front of and behind the subject.

Really cool. Had no idea it could do that. Tried it out and it worked just as advertised. Tried the same thing on my a900... doesn't seem to have this feature. Am I just missing it somewhere, or is this really yet another feature that cameras from the last century have but modern ones do not?

A7R2 with SEL2470Z and a number of adapted lenses (Canon FD, Minolta AF, Canon EF, Leica, Nikon...); A7R converted to IR.
