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

only you can answer this question.  if you are happy with what you are getting from the 12-40 and don't like changing lenses, it sounds like the perfect situation for you.  me, I cannot imagine a set of circumstances under which I would give up my fast primes (especially the 20 and 45), even if I had the 12-40 (which is very attactive zoom range).  I havent used my 14-42 standard zoom in ages, though I am considering the 12-32 from Panny just to get to 12 without having to spring for the Oly 12 prime.
