No problems in AV or TV or P modes, full range is available, but in M mode, f2.0 is it.
Any clues would be very much appreciated...

Amazing what can be found in a camera manual :oops:

Quick control dial lock must've been bumped - obviously time I got to know my camera a little better....

Is it only with this lens? Have you tried others? I don't want to seem like a goof, but maybe you haven't clicked your "on/off" button up far enough and you have the back wheel turned off?

Most of us have made this mistake.. I remember freaking out myself, thinking my expensive camera just broke on me. Glad you cracked the code :)

What body are you shooting on? some have custom functions that limit aperture range.
