Fogg makes a pouch which will fit that camera/lens combo, but not really 
anything additional.  It's pretty, pleasingly made, dreadfully expensive;  my 
main complaint with it is that the belt-loop is made of such thin leather it 
stretches a mite easily for my taste.

There's a little canvas Domke bag, and accessory wide canvas belt, which will 
carry more stuff.  Very rectangular, can stick out enough to bump into things.

There's a brand of bag named after some outdoor photographer -- (Galen Rowell, 
maybe?  I could be way off on the name, so take this with a grain of salt) 
which includes a largish-waist-pouch-shaped bag which seems like a fine idea, 
except a friend's disintegrated disturbingly quickly, and I heard other 
reports of fragility.
