Trade my 300 f2.8 IS II for the 400 DO II - any advice?

I use my 300 f2.8 IS II for air shows, usually with the 1.4xIII. I have rented the 400 DO II three times, and it's a great lens also. I'd rather have the 400 over the 300, and have often considered getting it.

I have two choices, sell my 300 and buy the 400. Or trade my 300 for the 400. I'd have to add some money in the trade. I bought my 300 new and it has been my 'baby'. It is in pristine condition and could almost pass for new.

I'm not sure a trade is the best way to go. I'm thinking of contacting places like MPB, KEH, B&H, or places that rent lenses. If I did trade, I'd have to see photos of the actual lens. The 400 DO II would have to be in excellent condition, and include some type of warranty.

What has your experience been?
