The 16-45 and 15 will more than get you the shots you want.
There's not much the DA 15mm will do that a 16-45mm won't. My 16-45 is sharper in the corners. My 15mm has better flare performance and a more contrasty look. Adding a CPL to the 16-45 addresses the latter. The only reason I have the 15mm is for its tiny size. I use it when I'm only carrying primes, or to pair with the 18-135. I never carry the 15mm and 16-45 together.

Here are some test shots I made to compare the three lenses. (Click on the first photo, click on the magnifying glass, click + twice for full size resolution.)

I travelled NY and DC with the DA15 and DA35 limited. I only used the 15. NY's streets were too busy to give me any room to change lenses comfortably.
