qcow2 to vmdk (best conversion)

I regularly convert a qcow2 to vmdk format, however the size of the resulting vmdk image size is always greater than the size of the qcow2 image.

qemu-img convert -f qcow2 foo1.qcow2 -O vmdk foo2.vmdk -p

For a example for a qcow2 image of ~2Gb the resulting vmdk is ~4Gb
Is there a way (option in:   qemu-img convert) to achieve similar size to the qcow2 when making this conversion?
