Is this a good price for this lens without a scratch on it?

I handled the 200 - 400 L this weekend at Focus on Imaging - it is no way comparable to the 100 - 400, it's got the built-in TC which is smoot, it's way better for IQ, is faster focussing and much heavier, to the extent that you would not handhold it for more than a minute or three - it's a beast of a lens but is massively clever - thanks to handling it the lens is no longer on my "buy" list, but has moved to the top of my "hire" list when it comes out!
NA, any suggestions for a soft 3 stop then? I like the idea of Glass of course, resin is find too I guess.
Personally, I plan to get a 4" CPL and 3-stop grad hard and soft from Lee, and a 3-stop reverse grad from Singh-Ray.
Personally I wouldn't waste your time with a 1-stop GND filter.
I have the Lee 2-stop and 3-stop in both hard and soft edge. My most used for landscapes are the 3-stop, which is why when I decided to get a reverse GND filter I bought the 3-stop (in that specific case Singh-Ray).
The Lee resin filters are good and at ~$100 each a lot cheaper than the glass ones.
If I were only buying one GND filter it would definitely be the 3-stop. Hard or soft edge depends on whether the bulk of your shots have an object in the foreground extending into the sky or not (like trees).
