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

I've thought about something wider, but here in claustrophobic Florida where everything's flat and there are not many vistas, and not getting to those places much, the 24mm equivalent width works perfectly. All of the primes may get rented if I take a trip like I did to Colorado or Maine. Indeed the one that might happen in May to the Northwest and Canada may require the wider angle!
