Ricoh GR snap focus mode question

Greetings RicohHeads,

I am contemplating acquiring a Ricoh GR (or possibly it's rival, Fuji X100s) for a single light camera to carry to countries where I need to be discreet when photographing people, buildings, and documents. I will be traveling to Egypt, Syria, Iran, and Israel.

Currently, for travel, I'm using a MFT Panasonic GX1 and either Panny 20mm, or PanLeica 25mm. But the shutter is loud and sometimes calls attention to subjects I want to covertly photograph. I do not want to use flash for my purposes.

I want a camera with a very quiet or silent shutter. Can the GR shutter sound be turned off completely or have a silent mode?

Is the Snap Focus mode easily accessed and can the Snap Focus distances be changed quickly?

Is AF implemented on Snap Focus?

Thank you.
