Olympus M.Zuiko Digital 40-150mm F4-5.6 R ED Review

The Olympus 40-150mm is an inexpensive ($99 new) micro four thids kit lens that performs very well for the price. The 35mm equivalent of 80-300mm in a very compact package compares favorably to the cheap 70-300mm options out there: Build quality is good and handling is nice on a variety of m43rd bodies. The lens is not stabilized and therefore pairs better with cameras that feature in body image stabilization (most Olympus bodies and a few Panasonic bodies) to help

5k Everyday

Two months ago I was running zero miles a month.

Get Discover Bank tax documents online (1099 etc.)

Tax time approaches! If you need a copy of your Discover Bank tax documents, you can find them here: link This is a very handy feature as you can download the tax documents at your convenience. However, I recommend keeping the paper copy in a safe place as well, because sometimes the financial sites go down just when you need them the most. Paper never fails you if you can find it 😉
