Zone focusing

I love the zone focusing guides on MF lenses and used zone focusing a lot before AF. For a given f-stop, I would put the infinity mark at one end of the range and read the nearest in-focus distance at the other end of the range then ensure that I kept that distance from the nearest object.  To do this with AF lenses, one has to pull out DOF tables or use a phone app.  That's such a PITA.  There must be a better way.
