    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.

    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.
