Good moon shots don't necessarily require expensive lenses. Yours is good, but to me, no better than these from the A-77:

But you are comparing a 200-500mm lens (with only one tele-converter) to a 70-200 lens (with two tele-converters stacked).

And, IMHO, the 70-200 still has the bigger lens beat. I could over-sharpen my image also, turn up the contrast and darken the highlights and then you would see the images are not even comparable.
