Cold Weather Lens Care

I am interested in hearing opinions on lens care, specifically when shooting in cold temperatures. I have read that reintroducing a lens too quickly to warm temperatures can cause condensation and subsequent moisture and damage.
How true is this?
How cold is cold?
How warm is warm?
How quick is too quickly?

basicly moisture in air will condense on cold surfaces, that's why people use Koozies on cold cans,
in the summer time you'll notice that the air conditioned kept lens fogs when you go outside,
in the winter the house tends to be pretty dry so there's not much fogging when you bring it inside

long explaination:
