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

50% lighter than 12-60

At 380g or so, it is 50% lighter than the 12-60, so seems in keeping with M4/3 design goals. Of course the 14-54 was only a bit over 400g, but it doesn't have the 12mm or constant aperture.

I assume there is a lot of glass in there, so it probably can't get any lighter.
