external flash on a7r3 - can't see anything through evf

i'm using a vivitar 285 thryristor flash and a manual focus legacy lens.

any way around either cranking up iso, cranking down shutter speed, or opening up aperture to compose through evf? or is this just a trade off of using a mirrorless camera?

guess i'm mainly wondering if using a 'smarter' lens or flash would make a difference.

shooting in near dark, on the fly, non-studio setting so it's been been frustrating, was aiming by feel, pressing play quickly, then firing again trying to correct for framing before subject moves too much...not really ideal.
