I haven't done very much in manual mode. I noticed that if you have a flash unit or trigger that is compatible with the M's external flash controls, the M can be placed into manual flash control and I don't think there is any preview. Under External Speedlite control, select Flash Function Settings then select M for Manual Flash Mode. Hope this helps ... may need to consider updating your triggers.

Just gave this a try and it works with my ST2 and Phottix Odins but with my dumb triggers it doesn't so yes it apears that the key is for the trigger to be M compatible.

Yes with my dumb triggers it happens the same. I suppose I'll have to upgrade to some TTL triggers. The hotshoe won't be "seen" by the M without anything attached on top.

Thanks guys.
