Vanguard and Scoundrel certainly. I've been the only Scoundrel around on planets with 50+ players on quite regularly, and Vanguards are probably rarer. On the other hand, there seem to be a lot of Gunslingers and Commandos. I think Jedi Shadows are probably rarer than either.

On my server the most played class is scoundrel, directly followed by sentinel. next in line would be vanguard. those three share roughly 50% of the population.

Pretty much any class that doesn't have a glow bat is rarer. Probably the rarest I seen is commando, mercenary, snipers, and gunslingers. I see a lot of scoundrels or operatives, but almost all of them are healers. Excluding the healers the rarest I seen is probably a melee scoundrel or operative. The strange thing is I saw a lot of them when the game launched, but then they got nerfed.

To be clear I mostly pvp and rarely pve. Thus, most can probably agree that is what you least see in pvp. Although from what I read and what I expect in pve commandos, mercenary, snipers, and gunslingers have pretty good. However, the worst class and spec at moment has to be scoundrel and operative dps for both pvp and pve. Thus, I nominated the dps scoundrel and operative as the least played class/spec.

I'm playing a melee operative and I did notice how nerfed she was. I'm still playing her but I can't understand BW and why they did what they did.

Is it really that hard to look at the post count for the various class forums? It's probably the most accurate number you're going to get for class popularity without numbers directly from Bioware.

That said, as time goes on, most people I know eventually have most, if not all classes, so the concept of being a unique snowflake-class wise-is really quite pointless in today's modern MMO after the first week or so after release (I think I had the third level 50 Marauder on my original server, and for a few days, was asked a lot to PUG level 50 instances, as an example).
I may now be playing with 140 ms ping (that sometimes jumps up to 240),
but I'll still kick your behind.
Enjoying the game again on Jung Ma.
Classes left to level: Gunslinger, Assassin, Powertech

yeah they fixed some of the issues with cover and you actually get a proper gap closer, instead of trying to roll into a cover spot that's close to your target.

on another note with operative, i wish they set it up more like they did, on your legacy emote, dual weilding vibroknives, and get rid of the pistol completely.

I would delete my operative if they removed the Rifle.
