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

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

If I hadn't sold all my Canon stuff and came on the scene fresh like I did and bought the 12-40, I would have purchased a few primes. But I seemed to hit it real well as Adorama had just received a shipment of this hard to get lens, and I was bent on a totally weather-sealed kit. As it stands, I am due to go to Cuba in October on a missions trip, and have already "weathered" a day in the rain photographing my quail shoot. As mentioned, the 60mm and 75mm are prime targets, the 75mm more so. I just wish is was weather-sealed.
