Contax-G is a great lens and it's quite small. The problem with it is the absence of manual focus ring. That makes an adapter rather expensive and focusing feel is significantly worse than a normal MF lens even with the best adapters. I have 90mm Contax-G Sonnar, and while optically it's the best of my 90mm, it's only 3rd in terms of usage. Keep that in mind.

C/Y Planar that you've linked to is certainly a great lens too, but it's not small at all, average size for SLR 50mm f1.4 lens.
