Would you go... 12-40mm or 17mm + 45mm on EM-1?

Hi all.

Looking to lean on some experience from the group here and get some general thoughts.

Using an EM-1:

Would you go with the new 12-40mm Pro zoom only...

..or a combo of primes, in my case the 17mm & 45mm (I realize this doesn't cover precisely the same range).

I keep reading how great people think the 12-40 is, but I'm curious "how great" relative to going with some primes to cover a similar range.

Thank you for your thoughts and please be easy on me!  I'm a 1st time poster!
