Looks like a good choice, mass-klr.

While your 2lbs won't affect your bike at all, the difference between a 5lb tent and a 7lb tent may be a 40% increase in packed volume. For me, reducing packed volume has been a great improvement even though my bulky gear hasn't weighed that much.
The difference may also be a thicker floor that's more durable, packs to a similar size, and lets you carry a lighter footprint for underneath it.
As for set-up volume, I bring in only some clothes, riding gear, and sleeping gear. All the rest stays on the bike no matter if I'm using hard luggage or soft. (The food and cook gear almost always go up a tree.)
