When they talk about DSLR's 35mm lens or 50mm lens? Are they talking about the diameter of the lens. And do most DSLR's have a 35mm . Some have 50mm?

they are talking about the focal length of the lens

these give the user different perspectives eg from 17mm all the way to 800mm .... and everything in between

The amount of "Zoom" you have.

This is what you're always talking about, which is Filter Thread Diameter:
