Analog to digital conversion

Should I expect any significant degradation of quality if I convert my HI8 and 8mm tapes to digital using the pass through method on my Sony Vx2000?

I wouldn't say there would be "significant" degredation. Just check your settings and make sure you're working at the highest bit rates possible and they should turn out fine.

I would agree with Tie Guy.

I would agree with Tie Guy. It shouldn't be significant. The software that you're using to capture the video will have settings to adjust the bit rates. I would recommend that you test several different settings by converting a small clip of video to see the difference in quality and the resulting digital file size before converting the entire video.
