Question about an old lens

I got a D200 from my grandma, who bought it in 2005. She also gave me a 20mm F2.8D lens, which I would love to use on my Sony A7ii.

However, I noticed that the lens seems to be quite 'foggy'? The images have very low contrast. It's worse in challenging lighting situations.

Is it worth sending it in for repair? What could possibly causes this? The front and back lens elements seem to be very clean. The lens itself looks brand new to me.

Thank you.

Some images can be improved by increasing clarity.
