What will adversely is effect the Leica rangefinder is when you brush it across a tree limb and it lands on a rock. The magnetic field won't bother it or be very secure.
Some shooting instruments are affected by magnetic fields. A Kestrel 4500 is an example.
I keep valuable instruments in vest or jacket pockets.
