I looked at 4 lenses: 18-135, 15-85, 60 macro and the 55-250.

I went through a similar process and none of my lenses needed AFMA, either. Like you, all of my lenses but one are slow enough to have a relatively deep DOF anyway. My 50mm f/1.8 was spot on. So I leave my AFMA turned off.

I suspect if one uses a lot of fast primes, particularly off-brand or inexpensive lenses, that a larger percentage would find AFMA useful. I do not think it is a gimmick or useless. I am happy to have it, even if I don't need it...yet.
