Hi Mark,
The most convenient way I can think of involves dumping LogListPlot and
using MultipleListPlot(in Graphics`MultipleListPlot`) which would graph
the modified data Transpose[{data[[1]],Log[data[[2]]]}] and on which you
could specify the error bars.

The second way would be to use the Show command to combine a LogListPlot
without error bars with graphics primitive commands like Line and Point
to generate your own error bars.
