Is the 12-40mm good enough to forego 12mm, 17mm, 25mm and 45mm primes?

I think so. I have it. I have sold my 45/1,8. I'm going to keep my 40-150 but sell everything else, well maybe I'll keep my 9-18. But the 12-40 is so good at 12 mm that I don't know if I'll use the 9-18 any more, although it's a very good lens it can't match the 12-40 from 12-18. I'll miss 9-11 of course. When you use a lens as good as the 12-40 you feel that all other lenses are worse than you thought before. That can be a problem. But a pleasant one.
