What do you guys recommend for a malty low diacetyl producing lager strain?

I've been using the Weihenstephaner strain but it is just SOOO slow and SOOO diacetyl prone (even when repitching a HUGE quantity of yeast) I'm pretty much done with it. I DO love that it's a malt-focused strain but it is just too slow and too diacetyl prone so I'm looking for a better lager strain that's still malt-focused.

I like WLP820 Oktoberfest. It is very malty and can handle any ABV. 820 is not as prone to ester/phenol imbalances as WY3068, IME.

I would certainly give it a good D-rest, as with most lager yeasts though.
