All are good, the Contax IIa and Leica IIIa were first class 35mm cameras of the 1930s and 1950s and both will do the job.

Things to consider is parts availability and the cost of a CLA down the road, and classic lens pricing (German and Japanese classic lenses) should you need to add some lenses later on.

The Barnack Leicas have the Contax IIa beat on these two factors.
