The Lexmark W810 and C710 I used to use did that, but it
was not G4 compressed (not a big deal, but something to
be aware of).

Acrobat 4 can import up to 50 files at once. So if you have
scanned to 50 individual TIFFs you can import them all in
one go (it's not that speedy though!). I expect that
Acrobat 5 can also import, but I could never find the
right menu ! What it can do (which 4 and earlier could not)
is spit out a PDF file as individual G4 compressed TIFFs.
