Hi

Can anyone please tell me if any of the popular (ie cheap) scanners
will handle 2.5 X 3.5 inch negatives without the need for a
separately purchased adapter?

If not, what is the cheapest way of tackling these - I have a few
hundred, so having these scanned professionally is not an option.

Many thanks Carl, that seems ideal.

It depends on what you want to do after you have scanned your
slides/negatives. If you want to get a scanner which is absolutely
phantastic for medium format, go for a Nikon Super Coolscan 8000ED. It
is less expensive to get than the new 9000ED. If you do not want or need
such a piece of equipment, go for an Epson 4870 - does this job very
well and costs less than half new compared to a second hand ED9000 on Ebay.
