7D exposure 2 stops overexposed...?

Hi,

I'm pretty new to DSLRs and have recently got the 7D with a manual Carl Zeiss 28mm f2.8 (reads as f2.0 in viewfinder) and the 17-40 f4L. Both lenses seem to need minus 2 stops exposure adjustment to avoid blown out highlights on the 7D. Is this normal, or why would this be?

Cheers,

Sam
