Gitzo 2540/1T or 1541T Size & Weight Most Important Factor

I'm in the final stages of reviewing light weight travel tripods. I'm using a Canon 5D II with 70-200mm in a taramac 614 bag that will be my one carry on.

Based on a previous thread inquiry the Gitzo 1550T seems to be out due to the weight capacity with the lens.

My question is do I go with a Gitzo 2540/1T or a 1541T or spend a ton of $$ on the Gitzo 1581OT.

Does anyone know if both of these are less than 17 inches w/o the head.

The ball head of choice is the Markin QT3.

Size and weight is key...your professional thoughts please
