Default Loved the 7Hi, Memory Recommended?, Accessories? Retailers?

I FINALLY made the trip to see my short list of cameras (7Hi, Sony 717, Nikon 5700, Oly 5050, Canon G3/G5)

I LOVED the 7Hi.
Big points for me were:
Zoom 28-200 was great.
Manual Zoom (just feels right)
AA Batteries
QUICK ! This camera focuses quick, aquires the image quick and refires quick!!!
Relatively Simple to operate (I am NO photographer!)
Readily accepts filters (mostly protection for my purposes)

Anywho, my question, now that I've decided the 7Hi is for me:
1) Which type, size, brand and retailing source do you recommend for memory? Prices?
2) Accessories I should consider (uv filter for protection, others?)
3) Online Retailers? I've bought from B&H & Camera World in the past, but their online prices right now on this camera are not 'great'. Who do you recommend for the best combination of price and respectability (service).?

Regarding the UV filter, make sure to get a slimline, ie 4mm or less. Any regular filter will vignette @ the 28mm.
