John and Alan,
you might want to look at the Feisol CT3441 or CT3442 tripods even though they are a bit over 2lbs. I have their bigger brother, and I am extremely happy with it. I am not sure what the policy on linking to commercial websites is here, so if it is a problem, let me know and I will change the post. In the meantime, Really Big Cameras has a lot of information about the Feisol tripods and are extremely helpful if you have questions.
The Zeiss will certainly be interesting. Don't count the Fuji offerings out, though. Fuji has made some great lenses over time and the 35mm is simply amazing.
