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

If I only have 1 lens, that'd be the lens I carry with me all the time, it's good enough for all purposes and IQ is quite acceptable

However, there're situations where I want to carry light and pocketable gear, I'd leave the 17mm f1.8 on my EPL5 all the time

I may even get the 25mm f1.8 for such a purpose

So the 12-40mm stays on the EM10 and the 17mm on the EPL5 for now

the 45mm is rarely used now that I have the 12-40mm, I may even sell it

I don't need the rest of the primes

Saving money for the upcoming pro zooms
