55-80mm basically means the lens starts from a view of 55mm and can extend to a view of 80mm,the bigger the number,the further you can zoom in
and to be honest,your question is kinda vague
try to ask something more specific

play around w the lenses are the fastest and best way to know.
anyway, a 50mm in 135 format used to be a "standard' lens. in digi camera w crop factor (say 1.6), becomes short tele liao (1.6 x 50 = 80mm).
all in all, v confusing for a newbie. reading books help but its kind of learning to swim on dry land. nothin beats hand on.
