I wonder if my Alpha 100 will survive my local zoo. They have a glass structure with a tropical enviroment inside...between 20-30 gegrees and the air is humid.

Anyone an idea? (If I had a alpha 700 I would not worry so much)

What about fixed focal lens and zoom lens?

Zoom lens sucks air in and out otherwise their would be pressure buildup...

Fixed focal lens are sealed or not?

(camera Manual: '0 - 40 degrees fahrenheit')

have taken both my minolta 5d and a700 to pittsburgh zoo which has a similar rain forest type thing in it with my 24-70 and 70-200 with no problems.

How about something like this (cheaper compared to an Aquapac bag and it looks like it will handle a longer lens):
