looking for opinions regarding which of the above lens is best. I love the quality and images from contax but i can get the canon for less money and the is may prove helpful. Any thoughts?

You get what you pay for. If you're satisfied with the look of the Canon stay with Canon.

right now i am using the 75-300 and am not terribly impressed. i intend to replace it and was at first thinking that the canon 70-300 is lens would be a reasonably priced improvement. And then i found this site and now wonder how the contax and canon stack up against each other.

The new(er) 70-300 IS is a big improvement over the old 75-300 IS which it replaced. It receives very favorable reviews. Check www.fredmiranda.com for some reviews.
