What am I dealing with here?

It is Lens fungus.

Only on the front element, and interesting this lens has always had a protective filter on it, so it’s equally confusing.

You may contact Sony customer services or other lens repair store to disassemble the lens and try to remove the fungus. If the fungus glow between two glasses and cannot be clean you need to replace the lens elements.
