Do I earn less experience or items if I have a follower?

I always thought it was free, but then the other day one of them said he was here for the gold, and I started to wonder,

Does he take part of the gold? Do you take less experience with him fighting with you?

The follower just help you in combat. If the follower has any +GF, +MF, or +XP per kill items on him, you will get 20% of their worth. And he will take his own exp growing and helping you in different and more usefull ways.

The only "cost" is the equipment you have to buy [or not sell..] for him ^^

So you actually get less experience? – Antonio MG May 24 '12 at 9:52
Talking 5 minutes ago with a friend he say me you will recieve slightly better loot and a little more experience!!! I'm correcting the answer. – Shyghar May 24 '12 at 10:51
Please provide a source that the follower effects loot. My understanding is he has no effect on how much gold drops or changes what items can drop beyond the +MF or +Gold on his gear. – Ramhound May 24 '12 at 11:08
