25fps vs 50fps difference is there but not so great as I expected.

You might find that ffmpeg is duplicating each deinterlaced frame to output 50fps from the 25fps source. If you use yadif filter and configure to output a frame per field of interlaced source the resulting motion is dramatically improved at the expense of vertical resolution. 
Depending on the content type this option might be preferable.
