Linear Vs. Circular Polarizer

Have been reading up on linear & circular Polarizers... some places say "use a circular polarizer with AF cameras and Linear polarizers with MF cameras" Other places I read, it doesn't seem to matter. Does it matter which one I use with my Manual focus camera? What visual differences would occur if I use a circular instead of a linear?

Kerry L. Walker   Either will work on a manual focus. You won't notice any difference. On an autofocus camera, use only a circular polarizer.
