Essentially what they do is cut out most of the glare in a scene. So for example if the sun is reflecting off the sea the polarizer will cut out the glare and you'll have crystal blue water and not a huge patch where the sun is reflecting off of it. They also saturate colours a bit more as well. Just be mindful of using them at a ultra wide angles (less than 35mm) as you'll get funny skies, half of it will be bluer than the other. They make pretty inexpensive lens protectors as well

The 55-200mm lens is an equivalent to a 10x optical zoom at the upper limit of the zoom (and completely lacks in wide angle). Thus, I recommend getting a twin.
And you said you are in the Brisbane area. Well, that makes it easier. Think you can make it into Fortitude Valley this Sunday? If yes, let me know via PM and I'll PM you which store I work at. I may not be able to offer the best price (but I will try), however I can at least spare you a bit of time to show you the differences between lenses and why you should get them.
