    This is the condition of front element.

    And this is photo of middle glass, I don't know which one.
    And look like some vapor stuck on glass or lot of dust on lens. And I think two glasses affected like this.
    I think, this is haze like you guessed.
    And back element is fresh.

    $50 lens, $300 repair.

    Kind of a no-brainer.

    Dirty elements is the problem.

    IMHO, it likely will not be worth the cost of the repair/cleaning.
    I would contact the seller, and ask for a return/refund.

    Yes....as I suspected. And yes, this is the cause of the extremely low-contrast images this lens is making.
