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

Good to know the question and the many answers were helpful. You won't be unhappy with the 12-40mm lens, and the grip. When I want to be less obtrusive, I take the grip off. But when I need to assist the camera's stellar stabilization, or want to "look more professional" (ha, ha) I use the grip. I also feel safer with the extra ledges to hold on to.

I am now more inclined to look at the 60mm macro as well, having read the comments here.
