All the A, P, Z-Pro and X-Pro series holders will fit, subject to having the correct diameter adaptor ring. Which type you need is more dependent upon the lens you are using rather than the camera. For example, with a super wideangle such as the 9-18mm you may need a Z-Pro or X-Pro to avoid vignetting. Likewise with one of the SHG large aperture telephoto or zoom lenses, because of the sheer size of the filter ring. For most lenses in the mid range, such as the 14-42mm and 40-150mm the P size will be fine but I would tend to avoid the smaller A size unless you already have a large investment in filters of that size.

It depends on your lens' filter ring size

These are usual recommendations:
