I would love to have a D800E also, but not available here either. ;)

As for the carbon fiber tripod, try looking at the Promaster T325P, very 
compact when collapsed and just right when extended.  Price is in the $150 
range.  I've had mine for a year now and love it, used it with my R8DMR and 
the 560 Telyt with good results.

I have almost decided to invest in a carbon fibre tripod and quality ball
head to maximize the potential of the Nikon D800e which I will buy as soon
as it is available here. It must be compact as well for easy packing on
photo journeys, and as light as possible. I have no idea about
tripods/heads/QR Plates, so any suggestions? The profusion of different
models leaves me dizzy...
