Apple ProRes Editing

I've been curious for quite some time now. When I import HD videos into FCP 7 with ProRes, and then export them, is there a loss of quality? Do I need to replace the ProRes clips just before rendering to get the highest quality possible? Or is ProRes just an intermediate quality that is automatically replaced while exporting. I hope all that made sense...

Basically, just some interviews I filmed that will be shown at a presentation. So I imported them as ProRes 422 (pretty sure thats the number). I want to export them as the highest quality possible. From the poster Mr. Ross, it appears that ProRes 422 hardly degrades the quality, and I can go directly from my edit to compressor without having to replace the footage with a full quality version once editing is complete.. Do you... Concur?

ProRes isn't intermediary. It is a finishing codec. Well, ProRes LT and Proxy are intermediaries. 422 and HQ are finishing codecs.
