Default Case for FZ40?

I just bought an FZ40 and need a case. Any suggestions? I ordered one from Amazon (listed as ""Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ40 Digital Camera Case Vidpro ST-60 Water Resistant Case - Black"), but I just got it and it seems to just be a general camcorder/camera case that may not even fit (I am in work at the moment). I am not happy that it was listed specifically for the FZ40, and am considering just shipping it right back.

Any thoughts greatly appreciated!!

I have this one in its way with my FZ35 if you want to look it up and compare the dimensions:

Stylish or not, personal preference comes into play as well, at least for me. By trial and error, I have found the at 12" left to right when viewing the bag from the front, is about what I can comfortably deal with on an everyday/ daily basis, as my camera bag doubles as my purse.

Mary's suggested bag is cute, but at 15" is too big for me.

sarah, she has bags in several different sizes if you are interested. i was just shocked and happy that someone was making a nice pretty camera bag that could double as a purse.

Must post an update... the AW50 is a nice bag. Too big for the FZ35 though. I'm debating whether to keep it or not... it works and there's extra space in the bottom for putting doodads or my other camera for that matter... but it's definitely overkill.
