Oly 12-40 or primes ?

Thinking of a new E-M1.
For wide to standard I would be interested in views on the difference between, say the Oly 12 or 17, Panny 25mm and Oly 45mm vs zoom.
Setting aside DOF issues, what to you guys think regarding contrast, detail and draw
ie. For those that have experience of these lenses, is the 12-40mm as good ?

Many thanks
