Just put them on your camera and try!

You will find the 28mm to be a moderately wide lens, comparable to the 43mm on a film SLR. The 50mm might serve well as a light tele, ideal for portaits or more concentrated shots in general, whereas the 135mm turns out to be a useful medium length tele.

As someone has already mentioned, the 28mm would be about 43mm equivalent if mounted on an APSC sensor size DSLR.

The 50MM would be about 75mm equiv. The 135mm would be about 203mm equiv.
