What is the best setting foe EOS-M stealth operation? Is there anyway to have AF without the assist lamp? [I am a beginner in EOS system]

I have issues with stealth mode when the ergonomics are as such on the M and there is no VF. It really slows down the operation. Now in fully auto mode that's another but I haven't shot that way in 30+ years. YMMV.
If the Vivian Maeir documentary is showing anywhere near you, prepare to be taught how to shoot from the hip.Poor woman lacked confidence but is the best street photographer I've seen. Period. Okay she had a rollieflex. But she never had flickr.
Learn to "shoot it from the hip". You can make an educated guess on what will be in your picture. Anytime you raise your camera to the eye level. It is not stealth anymore. Therefore no view finder will not hinder you.
