    It means the lens has a maximum aperture of f1.8 and can zoom from a focal length of 5.4mm at the wide end to 54mm at the long end.

    Remember that in some parts of the world they use a comma as the decimal place. The so translate into American

    1.8 / 5.4 - 54

    Is this a video camera lens? Either that or a P&S with a long zoom.
    It likely means f/1.8 and 5.4mm to 54mm
