Re: Did I make the right choice?

That's a good deal for a pukka UK E-M5ii + 12-40.

As regards the 12-40 vs the 12/2 + 25/1.8, I'd say you made the right choice. The 12-40 is sharper at 12mm than the 12mm prime and whilst the 25/1.8 is a great lens, it's not the best choice in the standard FL range if shallow DOF is what you want (the Sigma 30/1.4 or the Panasonic 25/1.4 would be better choices). All IMHO of course .
