I think "normal" marine binos are 7x50, and anything more powerful than 7x has too much movement on the water unless it's stabilized. Who makes a 10x50 I-S bino?Normal marine binos are 8 or 10X35 but since the stabilized ones are lighter and smaller, moving up to 10X50 is easy.
I've been using my old 7X50's for many years. Perhaps you can give me an idea of the cost associated with these lovely binoculars and that may help me decide to go there, or simply remain ignorant in my current state of bliss....If you have never used a set of quality stabilized binocs, try out a set and be prepared to either shell out the $$ or live with the disappointment of reverting to the traditional 7X50's
N0 - read again. The compass is stabilized. Not the image. (Also, WM's price is not competitive on those)I found this pair on the West Marine website and they are 7x50 by Steiner. It appears they have image stabilization and are compass bearing.

If one one pair - definitely the Steiners (they are the best IMHO, or a if they don’t fit your budget, choose a good quality 7x50 bino)So, the comments and reviews from cruisers and captains about those are amazing. Would they not be a good choice while on the water? If not, if you had to select one pair, would you go with the Steiner’s or with a pair of Fuji’s with image stabilization?
