Welcome to IWETHEY!

New Huh...
Our Brother came with software to scan to PDF for OSX. I can't remember the name of it, but if you install the Brother Control Panel (I think) there's an option. Then the computers with the software installed show up in the select menu when scanning using the "Scan to Image" option. Anything that gets scanned in shows up as a PDF in Preview.

I just did this the other night. No $150 software was required.

We have an MFC-295CN.

Welcome to Rivendell, Mr. Anderson.
New Different beasts.
The fi-5120c can scan 25 sheets/50 sides per minute, 50 sheet ADF, very good mis-feed prevention, etc., etc. It seemed to be the best scanner for the price - I think it cost around $600 at the time.

Fujitsu doesn't have OS X drivers for it. VueScan doesn't support it either.

The current version most similar is the fi-6110. It's $650 or so. It doesn't have OS X drivers either.

Newer scanners often have OS X drivers since OS X has gotten more popular. That helps Linux as well since under-the-hood they're so similar. But a lot of these more specialized tools often still only have Winders drivers. Unfortunately.

Cheers,
Scott.

Anytime I tell a client that "Oh no, those computers just change settings and delete things" instead of "You're a moron, and should be entrusted with nothing more complex than a crayon and an Etch-A-Sketch.", I'm lying.
