Aside from batteries dying quickly in cold weather, I've only had one real issue with a Nikon camera in the cold. I was shooting both a D80 and a D50 on a 20F day. After about 90 minutes, the D80 was doing fine while the D50 was shooting every picture about 2 stops over exposed. Turns out either some grease was more viscous or a material in the shutter/mirror mechanism was slightly binding in the cold and allowing the shutter to stay open too long. As soon as the camera warmed up, it started to function normally again.
