The difference seems to be very minor. My guess is that it's related to the speed change. Maybe turn off Frame Blend (right click on the clips) and see if that helps.
I tried Frame Blend with no luck. At closer inspection of the screenshots, the difference between the two is clear for me. Just zoom in to the lower-left corner of the images.
I'm amazed at the fact that VirtualDub, a simple and free program, has an option to copy a Direct Stream, which doesn't recompress the video and returns the same quality, and a professional level editor like Premiere doesn't have a similar option. Instead, it always recompresses the video and messes up with the frames? The speeding up (fast-motion) of a video is a simple process and I don't see why it should degrade the quality of the frames...
Because by changing the speed, you are in fact changing the footage. Those changes appear to be introducing some very minor softening. It may not be unexpected given the source.
If there is a way to fix it, I'm just not aware of it.
