Morton Hilmer spent two months on Ellesmere Island with a Z6 and Z7, and I "think" he said he had problems below -30c, but flawless performance once the temperature rose to -25c.

Which would reinforce your findings.

His experiences are in three videos (plus an earlier one about him preparing his kit for the trip)

The first video is here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KwwPsRe2zJs

Graham - thanks for posting - good info.  Interesting: he said his battery door came off (had to duct tape it), and he had to remove the rubber eye piece over the viewfinder because it kept filling with snow.  If he was good on Ellesmere for 2 months with the Z6 in those temperatures, I'm sure I'll be just fine in Svalbard for a week.
