There are very few instances in which the scale has any value today. Macro does comes to mind, as AF systems struggle with close distance focusing. In my opinon, it's just another previously useful but now obsolete item from the film days. AF systems, and live screen preview for manual focusing are the ways of the world now. I've made a decent living without having a scale on my lenses in the past. To be honest, I didn't realize my new lenses had them for several weeks..
