How much do you plan to use the 10mm to 12mm range? If the answer is not that much then I would stick with the 14 and 23 primes. I'm struggling with the same decision but I'm starting to think that I'll either do without the 10mm to 12mm range or I will end up with all three lenses .... I don't think I'm going to be able to part with the 14 or 23.

I have struggled with that question. In my full frame world, I made good use of the Canon 16-35 lens, often shooting at 16. I don't know however if that was just because it was as wide as it would go rather than making a conscious decision that 16 was the best angle for the particular photo I was taking. Thus far, on a couple of trips I have made this year, the 14 has really not left me feeling like I needed a lot more width to capture what I was photographing. In some ways, I am struggling with whether I am going to be more of a prime shooter with the Fuji's or a zoom shooter. Like I said previously, in the past I have been mostly a prime shooter, but the primes I have used with Fuji thus far are so good that I keep gravitating to them when I have the opportunity. I am not sure I can see myself with all three. I have gone back to Lightroom and looked at how many times I have used the 16-35 at the widest setting, but have not really drawn too many conclusions at this point.

Oops.  In the past I have been mostly a zoom shooter as I said previously.
