Hawke Sapphire 8x42 vs Nikon Monarch 7 8x42

Hello, could somebody give me an idea as to which binocular is the better of the two listed here - Hawke Sapphire 8x42 vs Nikon Monarch 7 8x42?
I couldn't find a comparison article on the net, nor the % light transmission for the Sapphire. Any opinions would be welcome. Thanks.

The (new?) Sapphires are actually 8x43 and have dielectric coatings like the Monarch 7.
Regarding another binocular, the Vanguard Endeavor ED IV has been highly rated even though it has no dielectric coating, and there's no softening around the edge of the view! But the other two are very bright and have a wider fov.
