This may be an obvious question but I'm trying to figure out the effect of a teleconverter on DOF. I notice that Rolando often shoots with a 50mm with a 1.4x converter. I know that you lose light but do you retain the DOF of the original lense at a given f-stop?

For one,...you lose image integrity with the use of teleconverters,....unless it is his goal to diminish the look of the image for some sort of special effect,.... As far as increasing depth of field,... hmmm....you've got me there.. I honestly don't believe that it does,...because you have also increased the focal length of the lens.
This was taken with a Canon 400mm f2.8 MKII L with a Canon 2.0 teleconverter.. which came out to 800mm f5.6,....which I hand held believe it or not.. Camera was the EOS 1n in AI servo, Film was Fuji 800 SuperHG
I have a 20x30 of this shot on the wall of my studio:
