Look at the Induro tripods - you can get a nice set of carbon fiber legs that will handle that plate camera just fine, for significantly less than the Gitzo. Look at the CT 114 and 214 models to see which one would be robust enough for you. I think the 114 would actually be strong enough, but if you are worried about it, then the 214 is a bit sturdier, and it also extends higher if you need that. Manfrotto makes a nice compact ball head with quick release that would also be adequate for that camera (I don't remember the model number off the top of my head). I have one that I used with my Shen-Hao 4x5 for hiking in the California Sierra, and was perfectly able to handle the 3-4 Kg of the Shen Hao plus lens.
