So I excitedly got the lens today and opened everything up. I put the lens on my camera and it was foggy. I noticed moisture buildup on the lens and on the back of it. It also felt quite cold. What do I do? Is the lens damaged?

Leave it all to warm up to room temperature. It will be fine.

I have had lenses fog up when they have been cold, them gone into a warm room. No rpblem when everything evens up.

That's the reason why I leave my camera and lenses in the bag for a while after I come home at a cold day. I also don't think that it will really harm your lens if this happens from time to time, but in general it's better to warm up the lenses very slowly when it was cold outside to prevent it from condensation.
