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

A lens slated to be less than 7 inches long is a "monster lens"?  Are you serious?

While the weight of the 40-150mm f/2.8 Pro less has not yet been disclosed (to the best of my knowledge), I expect to positively enjoy carrying a lens of that quality around all day on my OM-D E-M1 in preference to my Canon 70-200mm f/2.8L IS on my EOS 5D MkII.  Bring it on!
