The reason I think it may be depth of field is due to the preciseness necessary in manually focusing; I took a series of shots barely nudging the focus each time toward infinity, and a fraction of a millimeter either way resulted in less resolved craters.

The entire disc of the moon is capable of being in focus at the same time.

I never said it couldn't be, what I said is the 70-400 with a teleconverter may have an extremely narrow depth of field, as noted by the fact that I was adjusting the focus by fractions of a millimeter and taking shots.  Everything was set on a 10 second delay to minimize motion blur, but a slight turn of the barrel one way or another resulted in the middle of the moon being out of focus, which was my focus (no pun intended) given the major craters along the shadow.  I will try and dig through my camera to see if the periphery became in focus with preceeding or subsequent shots.  If not, then motion blur may be more likely.
