X100 under heavy winter conditions (-20C or less)

I've been recently using X100 in the winter conditions and I'm quite surprised how good it responds to them. No lags, no steam on lens.

The only issue is: battery's short live.

But having 3 with me I'm quite ok.

So far I've tested it up to  -20C (real temperature) with heavy wind (so the perception could be even lower one).

I'm wondering if any of you have tested it in the "real" winter like -40C or less (in the mountains of course). Himalaya? Others?

Let's share please. For sure DSLR is not the choice for me when I have a dozen or so on my back. And the X100 is always in the leather case on my neck. Even without the lens cap.

Few pics from yesterday here:  Kolakchal Peak, Iran, -20C
