Hawke Sapphire or Zeiss Terra

I'm thinking of these binoculars. The Zeiss, in my opinion, look a bit cheap and nasty, but I've heard the view is good. The Sapphires have dielectric coatings - I don't think the Zeiss do?

I would have guessed that the Terra had dielectric but I can't find any mention of it on the Zeiss site. Perhaps not then, but the colours seemed good to me if not HT and EL standard. One out of four Terras I've tried was very sharp. I didn't do a direct comparison but my feeling is the others didn't quite match the Sapphires I've tried.
