My view is that the lens is the most important factor in the the final photograph (technically speaking of course).
You've bought an expensive camera and until you use high quality lenses on it you won't get the best out of it.

If you progress with your photography you will want a better quality lens down the line.

So, if you can afford it, I would keep the 12-40mm.

It will outlast your camera and will retain much more of its value when your camera is worth very little.
