Can't compare to the SAL as I've never used one, but...

You say you don't care about manual focusing, but the Contax is really different because these were made to be AF only. It can be really tedious to try to get focus on spontaneous things like a portrait. If at all possible, try one first to make sure you know what you're getting in to. I'm speaking from experience, as I didn't really know what I was getting in to when I bought mine. 
You won't be disappointed with the output though. Punchy, razor sharp,  and with a lot of pop I don't see in any other lens I own (18-55, Sigma 30, 55-210, FD 50 1.4).
