I'm looking for a ultra light tripod to be easy to carry but capable to work with a eos 5D II + tele zoom
All advices are welcome

What is "ultra light tripod" in your understanding? What is "tele zoom" in your case - 70-300 f4-5,6 or 70-200 f/2,8?
For me this tripod works acceptable on 7d & EF300 f/4L:
I know, Benro is Chinese, but at least the above model is far more robust, has better functionality and was significantly cheaper than my previous Gitzo 1227II - broken, apparently for no other reason than exposing it some time ago to -20C and probably bad manufacturing of a certain part.
Both Benro (linked above) and Gitzo are carbon fibre tripods and, of course, are not cheap tripods.

Thanks for your advice Fpix, the max load of the gear should be 5DII + 70-200 f2.8 IS II, I think about 2.5 kg

If any other advice...welcome

Just one default, expensive !

I have recently bought a beautiful Manfrotto 190 CX4, I'm going to publish soon the review! It is a very well built tripod, and thanks to carbon fiber it weights just 1.6 Kg Sorriso
