Freezeproofness in practice?

Olympus claims that bodies like E-M5II and both E-M1 I & II are freezeproof to a certain degree. Could somebody enlighten me what does this mean in practice and is there any real evidence to back this claim? We are currently enjoying the first winter in three years in Helsinki and my Pen-F freezes fairly quickly in temperatures below -10C. I keep spare batteries in warm pocket but it would be nice if the camera worked a bit longer without changing the battery.

So I am tempted to purchase a second Olympus or Lumix body that would be weather sealed and freezeproof if there is some real life evidence that this freezeproofness really means something.

So what´s your opinion and does anyone have any experience? Would for example E-M5II function longer than E-M5 in similar sub-zero temperature if both had a new fully charged battery and were used exactly the same way?
