Totally new guy to photography here.. and basically I'm just wondering, is it alright to take the powershot pro s3 into cold rain/sleety/foggy weather? (basically subzero)

My fear is that condensation and freezing will ruin the camera lens, and this camera was ****ing expensive. So is there anything one can do to protect a camera?

I have a S3 and even though I havent really taken it out no where closeto those kind of elements mine has performed well.The only caution I have about that is that you be careful in buying metallic adapters/converters/le​nses.I heard that with them being metal,they tend to expand and contract in cold/hot weather and therefor could crack the plastic lenses.It makes sense when I think about it and I just dont want to take that risk.
