PS Elements can be a loss mechanism all by itself

Here's my question: Am I losing raw data (information) if I make no changes during translation; will there be less flexibility once the file comes out of Olympus Viewer as a tiff or JPEG? To work on a tiff or JPEG, I currently use Elements 6.

One reason I graduated from Elements 7 to the full version of Photoshop is that some of the editing tools are not provided in 16-bit mode. TIFF won't help you as much as you would hope if you apply 8-bit edits to the images.
