7x50 binoculars have been popular with sailors for decades. They feature a fixed magnification of seven times and have a lens diameter of approx. 50 millimetres, which makes them very light-intense. Nowadays, marine optics with higher or variable magnification are also available, which are equipped with an electronic image stabiliser.
Generally speaking, the more expensive the binoculars, the better they will be. It'll be hard to get the best optical performance and a robust mechanism that can also withstand moisture, cold and heat over the long term for less than 500 euros. This has been seen time and time again in YACHT tests.
