older vs new Nikon Monarch 5 binoculars

I have the chance to pick up some Nikon Monarch 5 8x42 binoculars for what sounds like a fair price. They are older - they look like this. I believe this model had dielectric coatings but not ED glass.

Are these binoculars a good value for under $150 USD? How much of an improvement was the updated model with ED glass? These binoculars seem to have been well reviewed when they first came out.

Thanks for your advice!
