Thomson alternatives with micro-adjust?

Looking for suggestions on a good alternatives to the Thomson Elite seatpost, preferably a bit cheaper and with a matte/flat black finish (I am really OCD and having a glossy black Elite on my matte black bike would probably drive me insane). I barely know anything about seatposts, so don't know where to begin.

Would the Thompson in silver be OK?

Nope.

Not unless I could get someone to paint it matte black and get rid of the logo.

Thomson's have absolutely no setback. Their setback version is also but ugly and comes in limited sizes.
