How does todays digital camera handle this super cold??

Here in the Ohio river valley we've been going through some very cold weather, and so has a good part of the rest of the eastern U.S. so! just what happens to the electrics in todays digital wonders, and just how much cold can they handle before damage sets in?

I can remember years ago i used to venture out in zero to a few degrees above zero with my old FM2, I have a "goose down" parka and I'd go to a local st. park and walk, I had my 35 2.5 series E, lens and Kodachrome 64 and a tri pod, still have the tri pod,[Bogen 3021] I had a D90s, but didn't trust it in the extreme cold, the FM2 never failed in the cold, today I'm a lot smarter, I don't go out in that cold anymore and I don't trust my D700 in that intense cold.

Just how much can these electronic wonders take? And what do the camera makers say about using in intense cold?
