Merely saying that in the products I've built, temperature testing is performed. Statistics eventually come into play, because we can't freeze and bake every single part (nor would we want to). So I would tend to believe that if Pentax publishes a wider temp rating for their cameras, it's the result of actual work,

And that work could even just have been more testing (or pushing the component manufacturers to do more testing). But it could naturally also have been to change a few temperature critical components.

and not marketing, and it should make a difference. Of course, it's possible that Nikon and Canon are simply less aggressive.
