How much do "bona-fide and credible" HTTPS certificates cost?Different certs are offered at different, but relative, prices.
I can never escape the conclusion that this rush to HTTPS for smaller sites is nothing more than a marketing exercise for distributors of secure certificates.Use a free cert: [letsencrypt.org...]
I don't see a need to make my frontend or other sections go HTTPS, at least not right now.Really? You don't think seeing a big red warning will scare your visitors away?

Things should improve further when I get a HTTP 2 capable server with faster page loads over HTTPSYes, it should be a measurable speed increase.
what warning? Is there any proof of this.Yes... you need to get out more :)
a little 'i' inside a white circle.That's a warning :) Click on it and it will warn your visitors your page is not safe.
just tried it with latest version of firefox as well -- no warnings on that eitherThat gray unlocked lock icon is a warning :) Click on it and it will warn your visitors your page is not safe.
If I am not collecting anyone's personal data, like a credit card number for example, is using https / SSL necessary?No, not in my opinion... but that's not the issue. The web has changed to SSL for ALL web pages whether we like it or not.
