Question Advice on lenses

I have very recently moved from FT to MFT, I had an E510 which I have now sold and bought a E-M1, I have kept two of my FT lenses and bought an adaptor to use on the E-M1 plus I have bought two MFT lenses, so my Olympus lenses comprise of the following:
12-50mm f3.5-6.3 mft
40-150mm f4-5.6 mft
50mm f2 ft
70-300mm f4-5.6 ft

I have updated to the latest firmware on everything possible.

My photography is very general as I don't specialise in any one area but do enjoy landscape, macro and sport.

So, my question is to the more experienced E-M1 users, would you change anything? Should I keep the ft lenses or sell them for their mft equivalents? Is there any lenses that I should add? I cannot warrant spending lots of money on new lenses and I splashed out a fair bit on the two ft lenses which I bought new some years ago, however, I am drawn to the 12-40mm f2.8 pro which many sites seem to suggest is a 'must have' lens, bearing in mind you can pick this up for around £400 which I could offset by selling one or two of the lenses above, is this a worthwhile thought?
Basically, I am looking for guidance from people who are far more experienced than me.
PS I also quite like the 9-18mm f4-5.6.
