In a service-bureau environment, I've scanned over a thousand grayscale scans into one multi-page TIFF file. The filesize there was about 600 MB as I recall.

I don't know if there are theoretical limits w.r.t. the TIFF spec. There used to be the 2GB filesize limit due to the OS (FAT16), but with FAT32 & NTFS, those limits are gone as well.
