In terms of OCR this tesseract is fantastic. I compared it to ABBYY 14 and tesseract had fewer errors on dictionary words. While it doesn't offer layout preservation with the OCR (i.e. converting into an editable document that should print similarly) you'll likely make up for that in the reduced time needed to fix OCR errors.

For handling PDFs you'll need to convert them to an image file, first - pdftopng (an Open Source tool that can be found in the Xpdf project)
