I picked up my 7x50 Steiner Navigator Pro binocs for around $300 I think. They may have been refirbs but in any case so far (couple of yrs) they are great.
As I said above, IMO what ever brand you choose get 7x50s not 7x30s. After using both the only reason to get the 7x30s is if you had to lug them in the woods all day. Light collection and field of view on the 50s is far superior.
