I guess that's right.  I haven't had much experience with low temperatures as you might guess.  Up in NC, I have to leave my camera outside for a while before opening the lens cap, or it gets covered with dew.  At least in early spring and late fall.

Trick is to put your camera in a Ziploc bag sealed up and leave it outside for an hour to let the camera acclimate.

If I am not mistaken, a little fogging up when you go outside is irritating.  

When you bring a cold item into a warm, humid environment, THAT'S when you get the serious condensation that wets down and destroys equipment.

Boy you got that right.  We see that in Florida all summer long.  I've always been concerned that the condensation isn't limited to the outside of the lens, but may be getting inside and mucking up the works.
