Sony SAL G1's used vs SAL G2's new

I have an opportunity to purchase both the SAL70400G & the SAL70200G for $1300 a piece from a trusted online re seller. (both come with a 30 day return policy should i not be satisfied wit the purchase, full money back minus the shipping, bla bla bla).  
The the question i've been fighting with, are the G2's of these lenses worth double the price???
SAL70400g2 is going to run $2100
SAL70200g2 is going to run $3000
I've always wanted to get a Sony G lens and i'm wondering if now is my time to pull the trigger.  I've never bought a used lens before, so i'm kinda nervous on the idea, but like the idea of spending $2600 vs $5100.  
I shoot with a a77 if it matters,
