Digital Camera World Verdict

If you want a scanner that can handle the day-to-day running of your photography business while also being able to scan 35mm film all the way up to 120 medium format (with either positives or negatives), the Canon CanoScan 9000F Mark II is the best option. It's extremely capable of scanning a whole roll of 35mm in minutes and if you progress into medium format film, you are not left looking at other options.
