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

Some blur

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.

Of course you can get some blur, often enough more than you want to....

Some pseudo-macro attempts with the first flowers this spring...

The last picture shows how difficult it can be to avoid blur everywhere when DoF is thin.
