Re: Good article here
This is a good article, they had nearly every brand of camera in Antarctica from Sony to Hasselblad, and it wasn't even that cold. My understanding is the 5DM3's are sealed a little better than the M2's, but based on how poorly the 5DM2 fared, I would be worried to take a 5DM3 out in poor conditions.

There is a reason the 5D3 is much heavier than the 5D2: more rubber for better sealing. The 5D3 is not sealed like the 1-series, but heavy rain is no problem:

I would however not take it outside when it's extremely cold.
