I prefer jpeg 2000 in pdf, but I have yet to find a good tool to
create these.

For monochrome documents I use 600 dpi with g4 fax compression.
(Unfortunately my HP ScanJet 8250's ADF is very loud at
resolutions >300dpi..)

Using jbig2 compression instead might yield smaller files.
Jbig2enc comes with a python script that creates pdfs.
