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

The 12-40 is a great lens but it does not replace the primes for me.

Since getting the zoom, I have only ditched the oly 45 (and replaced that with a voigtlander 42.5mm).

I use the zoom when I wan convenience or travelling but will bring out the primes when I wan a compact setup or just need more light.

Even that little more light in my 12mm f2 makes a difference to me. Plus I really love that lens too much to sell it.
