I mentioned autofocus, but it wasn't really part of my argument.
I was addressing autoexposure, which works regardless of whether the lens aperture is calibrated correctly. With a digital camera you can have it do auto bracketing, and if you shoot RAW, you generally have enough latitude to make a good image, except in the most contrasty situations.
And if you are in that situation, HDR is the way to go.
Of course moving subjects and fleeting opportunities can make a hash of this, in which case you're stuck with autoexposure.
