Best route for re-digitizing footage from HDCAM-SR - 10-bit or 8-bit?

We have material on an HDCAM-SR tape (1080/23.98PsF) that is supposedly 8-bit. We need to digitize it into AVID and re-lay it back to HDCAM-SR tape. Should we re-digitize the material into the AVID at 10-bit resolution to help minimize data loss, or does re-digitizing 8-bit material at 10-bit have absolutely no effect on quality preservation through this process?
