Leicas are norrmally quite good on metering (within the confines of spot metering).
Have you checked whether any exposure compensation has already been programmed in? I don't think it resets itself, so if its consistently 5/3 of a stop out, then it might be that.
Page 107 of the user manual shows how to adjust / check..
Manual is here:
If its not that, you could use that function as a short term measure to consistently change the exposure.
You don't say how old it is.... if its still under warranty (actually, even if it isn't but its still reasonably new) I'd be tempted to correspond with Leica directly (write first - they respond quite quickly) to establish what they think the problem and solution should be. The 8 went to 8.2 quite quickly (by Leica standards), so its always worth an initital sounding out (which costs nothing). If it is their fault, they'll instruct you what to do next.
