Milky Way with an AF Fuji lens?

I’ve been thinking I may like to try some Milky Way photography at some point so have looked online for some pointers. One thing constantly comes up and that is infinity focus. Most say that lenses that even have a focus scale aren’t accurate and you need to manually focus on infinity (during the day) then make a note of the position on the scale and even mark it on the lens with a pencil or maybe some tape. Luckily I have an adapter and an old manual Canon FD 28mm that I can try out. I was wondering though what folks with modern AF Fuji lenses would do though with no distance scale? Is Fuji unique these days in having no distance scale on their lenses? Obviously if the bug persists then an ultra wide Fuji X mount manual lens is the way to go.
