I have a 30/40 pair and a schoeps MS rig (MK4 and MK8).  I've never had iss=
ues with my schoeps in extreme cold or heat. I've always heard about humidi=
ty being an issue but i haven't had any problems. They performed really wel=
l in -30 Fahrenheit without issue for over 6 hours. 90 percent of the time =
I prefer the sound of the schoeps to the MKHs. They sound more natural to m=
y ears. They are both great mics and have their uses . . .  schoeps is just=
 my preference. I don't want to start a debate here -- that is just my pref=
erence and I own both because I enjoy them both.

I've used the CMIT in the field and it performs wonderfully.  It is very di=
rectional and have a very natural sounding off axis response.  i'd suggest =
renting them and testing both before you buy anything.
