I have it too, and yes, at close focus, the maximum aperture changes. AFAIK that is normal behavior for a macro lens. I remember reading something about it when I chose this lens some years ago.

I have the same combo and just tried the tamon after reading your post. Same thing here. I wonder why. On my D300 reads 2.8 on D800 3.2. Hope someone will come up with some explanation.

Is anyone using this lens with a D800?

I ask because I just bought one but the f stop won't go below 3.2. I understand by reading one test the it is actually measured as f3 but I would think the camera would show 2.8. Can anyone confirm this?

I have Canon 100mm macro and this thing doesn't happen. I don't think it's normal behavior for every macro lens, maybe for Tamron.
