Tell me your favorite awesome TIF viewer!

I am on the lookout for a good TIF viewer to use at the office. We have a number of clients who scan multi-page documents to TIF format and e-mail the TIF's to us as attachments. While I would always prefer people to scan to PDF, some customers use TIF because of other internal requirements, and as their IT company, I feel kind of foolish telling them "Hey, I don't really have any software that can read this file."
Here are my requirements:
2. Can view multiple-page TIF files. All the image viewers I already have installed (Picasa, Windows Image Viewer, etc.) will show only the first page of the TIF and nothing more.
3. Ability to convert the file to PDF would be a huge bonus, since that's our standard format for scanned docs.
I am currently using something called Brava Reader. It works for viewing all pages of the file, but when I try to print to PDF, it for some reason converts it to a negative image (white text on black background), which is problematic.
If you've got an awesome TIF viewer that you're happy with, please let me know!
