Thanks Liz! That OP/TECH USA case looks pretty good. I like that it closes using a magnetic snap instead of a zipper.

Thanks! I will definitely order an external charger and extra battery. As for a case, I haven't decided whether to just get a Lowe Pro locally or maybe try one of those Olympus neoprene cases I saw earlier this year when I was lurking here.

I also plan on getting a beefier wrist strap. Don't know if I want a grip yet or not. I haven't had any trouble holding it so far because I have small hands.

I would be wary of those Olympus neoprene cases. Some folks were able to tweak them to make the camera get in there, but for others (myself included) there was no way to get the camera case to close around the camera. It was simply too small.

This case from eBay works perfectly if you use a wrist strap and want something from neoprene. I was quite happy with it until I decided to use a neck strap.

Case from eBay, above, $6.97

If you decide to use a neck strap (or even if you don't) the case pictured below is a perfect fit as well:
