Not mentioned over at http://sane-project.org/sane-mfgs.html#Z-CANON
so you might want to at the very least submit the USB ID.

It's a weird situation but while Canon's CUPS drivers work
(these do have blobs but the licensing would even allow
repackaging last time I paid close attention to the letter)
there seems to be no sign that they work with SANE to cover
their scanning parts...
