Can you attach a lens to any camera?
You can attach any type of lenses that is suitable for your project, as long as it is compatible with your camera body. Generally, lenses are only compatible with the mounting system for which they are built. Most camera manufacturers make camera parts that are exclusive only for their camera bodies.
Do lens adapters affect quality?

How do you use a long telephoto lens?
Blurring backgrounds is easier with a telephoto lens than it is with a wide angle lens. Set your camera aperture on f/8 or lower, zoom the lens out to its longest focal length, and get as close to the subject as possible while still being able to focus.
