Please have a look at this article: Prosumer cameras (AKA Bridge Cameras)
Prosumer cameras (AKA Bridge Cameras) are cameras which fill the niche between the single-lens reflex cameras (SLRs) and the Point-and-shoot camera. They are often comparable in size and weight to the smallest Digital SLRs (DSLR), but almost all digital bridge cameras lack an optical viewfinder system (film bridges generally had a lighter version of a reflex finder).

Something like those example below , which on would be better for action shoot (faster  turn on, faster autofocus , good video etc...

I think you will be better served with the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF3 or the Olympus PEN E-PL1 models - they both have the Four Thirds sendor sizes.Sensor SizesOf course you have to look at other characteristics as well - fastest shutter speed will freeze action better than a slower speed, etc.

Great that's eh one I though about and in all the example it's the one with the faster shutter isn't it ?

Also what is "... with 14mm Pancake Lens"

Does this lens has a wide screen effect , or a little zoom capability ?

Can we screw a filter on it ?

A "pancake lens" is a short barrel lens (low profile, if you will).

Yes, there are filters for this type of lens.

EDIT... Please see this article above:
Focusing is internal- the front lens element does not rotate, allowing the consistent use of polarized filters. The 46mm thread lets a Micro Four Thirds user share filters between it, the Panasonic 20mm, Panasonic Leica 25mm, Panasonic Leica 45mm lenses, and the Olympus 12mm.
