I tend to aim the camera at a middle gray area at AE, then use hold (half depressed, recompose and focus. It is a technique I have used for so long with my M6-es (albeit not the hold, but the red-dot-in-the middle) with their real spot-metering that I still do so on the M8, where it makes less sense. I find the metering very accurate, with only rarely a need to correct by going into manual. EV compensation I never use.
