Why can't I take a picture thru the view finder while in manual mode. I have to go thru the lcd in order to be able to take the picture.

I am guessing that you have "Live View" turned on?
If you turn Live View Off you should be able to use the viewfinder.
Press the Lv button to exit Live View.
Good Luck and Enjoy your Nikons!
