    I notice that during the week, I'll be driving to and from work and sometimes see a great photo op but no cam.

    Can I keep the cam in my car?? My car temp is obviously cold. Will it mess my lens or body? I have a xti btw

    it shouldn't be too bad for your camera...but there is always a possibility of it getting stolen. it's up to you to take that chance.

    im not worried about that cause the parking lot at my office is fairly secure (you need a badge to get it and they have cams)

    Im just concerned with the temp

    You only drive your car to work?

    Not good for the battery. If you leave it in the car, at least take the battery out of the battery compartment. Heat on the sensor also creates extra noise in the image.

    not good for the LCD either. depending on how cold it is where you are of course. Here in Canada-land it gets damn cold... too cold for LCD's to operate properly

    the last two posts had some valid points however the best argument for leaving your camera in the trunk is that you run the risk of moisture condensation whenever you take a cold camera into a warm, humid environment. You don't want moisture to form on the sensors or electronics. I'd leave the camera in the car if I were you.
