Yes - I find the effect more noticeable in the negatives and more pronounced when printing. There is times I like it, there are times it is too noticeable. It all depends on the image I am wanting to achieve as to which one I use - I would estimate the linear gives 1/3 of a stop more effect, maybe a 1/2 stop in very limited circumstances (by which I mean, the sky would be 1/3 of a stop darker than if I used a circular). However, I have never done a full test but for example, skies done with a linear needs less burning in than skies done with a circular polarizer.
