This design is absolutely not rare. To the contrary—in those days everybody designed their fast (1:1.4, 1:1.2) standard lenses (50 - 58 mm) in exactly the same way: Double-Gauss (= 'Planar' in Zeiss speak) with seven elements in five groups.

Slower standard lenses (1:2, 1:1.8, 1:1.7) usually were, and often still are, six elements in four or five groups. For the faster designs, the rear element was split into two separate elements, for a total of seven elements.

In the '60s and early '70s, every lens maker grouped the seven elements into five groups, using two cemented groups. With the upcoming multi-layer coatings, within a few years during the mid-'70s all of them switched from the then-usual 7/5 design to the more modern 7/6 design which provides two additional degrees of freedom and is easier to manufacture but causes more internal flare which however is kept under control through the improved coatings.

those are some very nice images, dourbalistar!

Seems like you're a big fan of that big lens.

Thanks, Jeremy! I got the FM2n and lens together for a great deal earlier this year, and have been shooting it a lot. The combination gives me a really wide shooting envelope, from low light at f/1.2 if I need it, all the way to very bright conditions with the FM2n's 1/4000 top shutter speed.

However, I did recently get a AI Nikkor 50mm f/1.8S, the Japanese version of the pancake lens. It's way smaller and lighter than the 55/1.2, but doesn't give up too much in terms of speed.
