Experience with Fuji Frontier SP2000 lab scanning??

The pro lab I usually use offers scanning when developing negs. I can get 20mb tiff, Adobe RGB, 8-bit files. The machine is a Fuji Frontier SP2000.
I see some benefits of getting the negs scanned at the same time as getting the film developed. Hopefully less dust and scratches. It also saves me time and I don't have to get a scanner at this point. Also I don't think you can really get more real resolution than 7mp from 35mm film. Yes, you can get more grain that's visible at 100% screen viewing at 22mp. But I'm after what's visible in print.
The negative thing is that it's only 8-bit and not 16-bit and that may be okay but I would want 16-bit...
What's your experience with this kind of scanning? high resolution Fuji Frontier scanning from prolab. I'm interested in your opinions.
