Imaging Sensors: How Does Temperature, Humidity Affect Precision, Accuracy?

Offering customers the latest technologies is one way we try to make a name for ourselves, and improve their operations. We've normally been pretty traditional with our sensor technology, but suppliers are pushing imaging solutions more aggressively since cost is becoming less of an issue. We like the added versatility an image sensor might offer. The machines operate in an environment that varies significantly in temperature and humidity, so we're unsure how precision and accuracy will compare. Anyone have observations, experiences, to share?
