X-Pro 1 - How low (temperature) can it go?

Recommended Posts

Anyone had any experience of using the X-Pro 1 (and 35mm/f1.4 and 18mm/f2 lenses) in temperatures as low as -35 to -40 Celsius?

The manual says -40, but I'm wondering if anyone has actually been out with the camera in that kind of cold.

I just photographed my brother running a half marathon in Minneapolis called the Polar Dash. It was -4 (F) when I started, and actually got a little colder in the 2 hours I was standing there. The camera operated just fine, but my fingers and toes began to malfunction!

I was just out yesterday in 10F weather with the X-E1 and there were no problems other than battery drain faster than at warmer temps. At that temp though, even my Nikon D300 battery suffered in performance.
