Problems with 100mm macro lens mount

Hi, I'm travelling right now and I'm having problems with my macro lens. I can fit it to the camera and it does 'click in' although I feel a more resistance than with my other lenses but it opens in 'av' mode and I can't do anything with it, even in full manual. Used it last week and it worked fine and even if I've been sailing for a couple of days right now I don't think it's the humidity. Any suggestions?

What lens is it? If it's an A-series lens or newer, make sure the aperture ring is set to "A".
