Default First lager question please!

After I get my lager wort to 70 with my IMC, should I pitch the yeast then or put the fermenter in the freezer and cool it further to 50 (where it will be fermenting for 2 weeks) and then pitch. From a practical standing point, I would think it would be ok to just pitch at 70, and put it in the freezer and set my temp control to 50 and let the freezer cool it down over a few hrs. Please advise.

What yeast are you using? If you are using a liquid yeast, did you make a good size starter? Around 2000ml - 3000ml? (About 3/4-1cup yeast slurrry)

I'm testing both methods right now. In a month or two I'll know. But in the mean time it would be nice if someone else could give the benefit of their experience.
