[warm] Mountain Hardwear Vision 2 ($199) and Ghost 2 ($264) tents

Vision 2 $199 (-50%) -- 5lb 1oz max. packed weight (bag, tent, poles, lines, stakes, fly),
Vision 2 footprint $27 (-50%)
Ghost Sky 2 (-50%) -- 3lb 13oz max. packed weight

The Vision 2 is a good car camping tent that can double as a 1 season backpacking kit. Its minimum teardown weight is 3lb 6oz if you're ballsy enough to go without the fly, stakes and guy lines. With a 70D floor you can go without the footprint. If you're car camping you'll want to take the footprint (or a tarp) since campsites typically have sharp gravel.

The Ghost Sky 2 is the compromise between the Ghost 2 Ultralight (which comes in around 2.7 lb and twice the price) and the Vision 2 but keeps a functional fly that goes down to the skirt liner, plus a thicker floor (than the Ultralight version). The Ghost Sky is ideal for backwoods backpacking where weight is everything, plus a 40D floor will hold up for a few years as opposed to true ultralight tent lines.

The Vision 2 is regularly "marked down" at Sportchek/Atmosphere for $270, so this is still a 20% savings over what you'd normally find. It competes directly with the North Face Talus 2, REI Half Dome 2 and MEC Camper-2, which don't go on sale and range from $240-270.
