Supermoon time

We have pretty clear skies tonight and the moon is overhead at a convenient time (10 pm), so I did a comparison of my SL with an APO Telyt 280/4 with an APO 2x extender against my new optically stabilized Fuji 100-400/4.0 - 5.6 on a Fuji X-Pro2. The Fuji has 24 MPx of APS-C image viewing through a 600 mm-eff lens, the SL has 24 MPx viewing through 560 mm focal length. First, with the Fuji rig, at ISO 200 (base), f/5.6 and 1/2000, handheld and autofocused:

and then using the SL and Leica-R rig, at ISO 400, f/8 and 1/1000 (on a small tripod):

Both yielded 1200x1200 pixel 100% jpegs. I like the Leica shot a bit better (that's why I post it here), but it was more effort.

Would someone with the Olympus 300 care to join in? Or with the 1.4x or 2x extenders for the Fuji lens?
