Default Binoculars w/ stabilization

My binoculars dropped and broke. Want to get a pair with stabilization without spending big $$. Any suggestions? I would like to keep around $500

Considering these:
Amazon Amazon

Any other suggestions?

I have Nikon. They are nice but very heavy.

I have Fujinon that I bought on Ebay for a bit more... maybe $700. I freaking love them - but sadly, don't use them much. If you need them - I highly suggest.

I'm a fuji man myself but those refurb Nikons for 500 is a smoking deal. I have checked a pair out that a friend has and my only complaint is the narrower feld of vision and low light performance. Overall optics are great.
