I seriously doubt you can stick a tc to a 5700 and still shoot at full wide.
You'll get serious vignetting.
By the way, I'm using the Olympus TCON-17.

Generally, the further you are from your subject (landscape shots), the greater the DOF. The closer you are to your subject (macro shots), DOF diminishes.
TC-E15 give you fixed 420mm & fixed aperture f/4.2 on CP5700, since you'll need a min working distance, hence you'll get sufficient DOF.
Hope I answer your question.

Sorry to confuse you.... try this
Changing the aperture (f-stop) will not have a striking effect on the depth of field for a distant subject or a wide angle (short focal length) lens, it can make a great deal of difference in a close-up or a photo taken using a telephoto or zoom lens.
