Just bought a sigma 70-200 f/2.8 HSM II lens for my d700 (the new nikon version is simply not in the budget currently

When i mounted it, the d700 went into DX crop mode... which was very disconcerting... I overrode it to FX size in the menus and it appears to be taking very nice pictures (i.e. no falloff on the edges) but I'm wondering if anyone else had seen that. Or perhaps I got a very old copy of it that wasn't reporting itself correctly to the camera, etc, etc.

Should I be worried? Send it back to Sigma?
