Taking into account what you have and what you plan to get, I personally would get the 45 and just use the 7-14, the 25 and the 45 for travel. This is a beautiful 3 lens set, and with a close up filter is good for everything except wildlife (birds, safaris, ...)

I tend to agree, except for one longer lens, like a 75mm.

On my last few trips my basic kit was… 7-14mm, 17.5mm and 42.5mm. Even though I carried a couple other lenses… 12mm T1.6 and a 105mm f2.8 macro (doubles as telephoto)… the majority of my shooting was with those 3 lenses.
