Is the 12-40mm good enough to forego 12mm, 17mm, 25mm and 45mm primes?

I have yet to be too distracted by it but I do step back as much as possible to improve the blur, but it is an issue. Thing is there is a lot of functionality with this particular zoom, and I think having the pro 40-150 and using it like a 70-200mm in a portrait situation might work.
