Has anyone tried Nikon's Sports and Marine 7x50 binoculars?

How doe they stack up?

A friend of mine asked me to recommend a binocular to use off a boat or an airplane, that would be under $300.  Considering that he is not going to be on a particularly steady surface, I think 7x50is a good configuration, but I do not know a whole lot about these Nikons.

I gave a pair as a gift some years ago, but my impressions from that time are:    Excellent quality in build and optics.  Very sharp, slightly less bright than a Fujinon FMT-SX.  The FOV is about standard for a marine 7x50; sharp zone was about to 70% from center.  Not as bulky as a Fujinon Polaris and fits my medium-small hands better.  Individual focusing.  I think that the eye relief was not particularly long, but not short either.  Foldable rubber eyecups.  Made in Japan. 

 

Overall, an excellent example and value of the type.
