Stills are not video and must be rendered to play back in real time.
As you have discovered, when the image size is the same as video native, you reduce some of the overhead processing. The computer simply has to convert the file to video instead of RESCALE the image first then convert it to video.
If you will be doing a lot of this, you may find using QT Pro a more efficient way to convert the images to video. Once converted, simply import the video file into FCP.
