True to a point, certainly want to be up to par on performance and capability. However, as you will see in the post above yours, there is absolutely no such thing as a one size fits all and the functions thereof are many. You can get by on just one 16" as an in-between, maybe slap a 1-8x on there and you've got most of it covered for a while, and perhaps use that until you find what it won't do and then add on accordingly.
