I think one of the best sources for adapters of all kinds is still 
Cameraquest, particularly if you live in N.America.
Bob Shell does a CY to EOS and Fotodiox a Leica to EOS.
On the European market we have :
4)Foto Huppert
1, M42 to Canon and various T2 adapters at reasonable prices
2,4 can supply Contax to Canon EOS both are high quality and price, the 
Huppert adapter is more practical than the Zork, their adapter is fixed 
to the lens mount with a grub-screw, the Huppert adapter can be released 
with a spring.
3, Leica to Canon and dozens of adapters for all sorts of mounts

If I understood your question correctly - I've never heard of a Leica to 
Contax adapter, T2 and M42 to Contax are available.

sell the Contax body and the 25mm and keep the other Zeiss lenses to use 
on a Canon !!!!
Consider that the 100mm leica becomes a 160mm Macro, the Zeiss 60 to 
just over 95mm, perfect for portraits and Macro.
