Pentax Super A

Im new here.

I have a question about the Pentax Super A. I have a Vivitar 28-200 lens for it. I just got it and decided to shoot a roll to see how it is. Loaded the film and lined up my shot. It was late afternoon, quite bright out, I had the shutter speed at 125 and the apeture at f 8. The light meter inside said there wasnt enough light. I tried it at every shutter speed and at 2sec at f3.5 it was ok.
My question is does this mean the light meter is messed in the camera or the lens is messed or both?

Any help suggestions are welcome!

With that exposure it sounds like the meter is messed up. Have you tried the camera in auto to see what it suggests then?
