Got the same result spot metering off a grey card in the same light...but behaved as expected when doing it indoors.

"Outdoors" seems to be the operative word here. I had not heard of metering off of blue sky. It just seems that one would get a somewhat higher reading metering off the sky considering the 'blown sky' problem we often encounter metering off of earth-bound objects.

When I can manage to remember it, I routinely set the T2i to -1 EV for outdoor shots. Thank goodness for RAW, DPP and HDR for that matter.
