2. The 80200f4 lens means an adapter was used, it required manual focus, and that lens by itself is over $1000.

Hi Chad, Thanks for the clarification comments. I bought my FD80200f4L for only 200 euros. A bit less expensive alternative could be a Vivitar 70-210/f2.8-4. The FD-NEX adapter I used was 20 euros. Definitely, manual focusing is totally different experience, absolutely intimidating at first. Definitely it requires a hell lot of experimenting and practicing, I am just in the beginning of  learning MF. What I love with MF is that I am not dependent on the capabilities of the AF any more, and I can more-or-less nail focus at F8 in quite low-light situations. I can blame only myself, if I miss the focus.

Thank You again for your words, Miki

PS: You have beautiful photos.
