the canon starts at 18mm and goes out to 135mm with the 18-135, so that is about 7.5-8xx of zoom, the 35 eq is about 28-216mm giving about 7.5-8x

The FZ is 35mm eq is 24-436mm giving it 18x of zoom

PS

how many times the close mm goes into the long end of the lens gives the X factor of a lens.

A good flash some knowledge how to use it with a good camera. The big aperture lens is actually not fast enough in that low lighting.

It is a good starter setup. The 550D is a great starter camera that can grow with you. But if you want to get that kind of low light shot, you need to add an good external flash like a nissin di622, metz 50 AF-1 or canon 430exII and read up on flash photography.
