At 45mm focal length, 5mm and about a stop are vital for narrowing that darn DOF, I say the 45mm is the prime that adds to the kit, not exlipsed by that there expensive zoom, no way siree.

All the others : yeah, mostly.

Two of my primes are pancakes though ... meaning they are pocketable on the right body, whereas your big expensive zoom is not.
