Lens Design: Timelapse

So I just recently got interest in trying out manual lenses, specifically FD mount ones.

I came across the 135mm F2.8 nFD, and found the hood design to be pretty great. Intuitive and minimal to say the least.

This is more of a open conversation about the design principles over time. Today I don't think I've come across a modern design that has a similar approach. I'm not giving much though to the question, but I can maybe think that weather sealing and over durability would the concern for today's manufacturers?

Some picture below will show the hood design on the lens. Pulled down to enabled.
