1. Zone focusing was the poor man's autofocus back in the day

In fact it pre-dates autofocus. Cheap cameras had fixed focus lenses and even when autofocus first started to appear in 35mm it was cost prohibitive to most, so zone focusing was used by just about everyone. I still use the technique today as it has lots of applications.
