I have this printer too, it is my 2nd Canon ImageClass printer, the first being the ImageClass MF4100 which was not networkable. They operate much the same way, and yes, scanning is totally possible... I have scanned hundreds of documents to them, but I don't believe either can scan over the network.
I have been getting the same error that ahbrobot initially quoted just recently and find now that there is a new driver (for OS X 10.7 anyway, which is what I have) as of August 29, 2014. I hope this helps someone out there.
