OT-ish: ImageMagick & PDF

Does anyone here use ImageMagick to produce their PDF files of old
documentation? I've got some scanned documentation here in TIFF format
which I need to munge into a PDF file using 'convert'.

Question is, will that result in loss of quality, or will the data for
each frame be stored in the resulting PDF file using exactly the same
colour depth and size of each input image? (I don't care if it uses a
different compression, providing it's non-lossy)

Last thing I want to do is store important data in a PDF file, only to
find that it drops the quality - and so at a future time I can't get
data of the input quality back out again!
