I've never had a problem with B&H and Adorama.

All Contax sales have ended as of this month, and most if the C/Y lens have not been sold for some months now.  It is unlikey that you will find a new copy of a Contax Zeiss lens.  Unless it is a well known and reputable store like B&H or Adorama, I would be careful about trying to order one.  I would start looking for second hand examples.  Try keh.com.
