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

Re: Some blur

I forgot to write that those blurries were all shot with E-M5 and 12-40/2,8 at 40 mm and f/2,8 except for the last one which was 21 mm. It's extremely difficult to find focus with a flower a few cm from the front lens, handheld and under windy circumstances. Anyway, it's definitely possible to get some background blur with the 12-40 and with more skill even some sharpness...
