Can anyone tell me why when I use this lens on a Nikon D750 why it will only go down to f3.2?

Is there a setting I'm missing?

Thanks

Normal on any body, depends on working distance
when shooting wide open with a macro.

If if you focus the lens at infinity, does your camera report f/2.8 when the lens is wide open? I suspect it will. If so, there is no problem.

Remember that in the Nikon system, the camera displays the effective aperture of a macro lens, rather than nominal aperture. And that with macro lenses, effective f and nominal f diverge as you focus closer.

Canon and some other players do it differently, displaying nominal f.

Cheers,
