Sorry to hear you killed your camera through condensation. It can also happen in warm weather as well. On a visit to Hawaii I drove up to a viewpoint in an air conditioned car with my camera. I got out and took some pictures, only to discover the view looked as if it had been taken through fog. My lens had steamed up. Now I always wait a few minutes for the camera to warm up.
