Seeing that, maybe try a different scaling algorithm, like bilinear?

One thing that just came to mind: to check the impact of the color space
conversion alone is like this:

ffmpeg -i input -sws_flags bilinear -f null -

To be honest, I have no clue if, the scaling algorithm has any effect on
quality of the conversion, but at least it might be worth shot.

On the other stuff below I am out of my depth. I am sure there are
others, that know more on that.

BTW, it helps a lot to provide the full output of the command, at least
everything before the stats line.
