Tokina 100mm 2.8 lens won't shoot at 2.8?

Photography Equipment & Products - www.thephotoforum.com
Sorry this is probably a basic question but I've been searching and searching and can't figure this out....

The lens is a 100mm 2.8 Macro lens and I'm using a D200 body. On the lens there is a ring close to the lens mount with F-stop settings on it, 32 through 2.8. The only time the camera will function is when that ring is on 32.

When that ring is on 32 I can't really adjust my aperture to what I want. It will only let me choose a setting based on the focal length the lens is at. Does that make any sense? If I try to focus on something close it might let me shoot at 4.5, farther away I might be able to drop to 2.8.

This happens in any mode that I'm shooting in, manual, aperture priority etc etc

Thanks in advance for the help!

Nick
