Are Conversions Lossless?

Just for discussion's sake; if I converted an epub to azw3 and then back again to epub, do I lose any fidelity of formatting?

I originally had my library in epub format but I converted them when I bought a Kindle. Now I'm thinking of switching to a Kobo ereader and will convert my books back to epub.
