Antonio, I see you used a 21mm lens with that image, so assume you use the external viewfinder because of the lack of framelines? How do you find that? I've got a VF coming to me to use with my 21mm. The thought of checking the exposure then checking the viewfinder seems a bit...strange?
It’s actually an 18mm Zeiss Distagon ZM. The reason the EXIF shows 18mm is that there is no manual lens code for the 18mm that I can use with the M 240, so I code it as a 21mm.

I’m using an external EVF. I focus with the rangefinder, and then switch to the EVF. It’s an additional step, but you quickly get used to it.

I’m assuming your 21mm vf is optical. I have two of those as well, and they have their own challenges, as the framing is not all that precise, and they tend to have a bit of distortion as well. Again, you get used to it, and once you become familiar with it, it will become second nature.
