From whom?  The comments on the LUG have been rather positive about the
4.5/135 Hektor, as are most printed sources.  I am not aware of any
critical comment of the design save for its slow speed.  It IS an older
design and more current designs are a bit sharper and have higher contrast,
but the 4.5/135 is a perfectly satisfactory lens for general photography.
