Do yourself a favor and buy the D750. For travel, the larger size of the D500 is a real bummer. The 16-80mm is also a lens that I wouldn't own:

The D500 is two tenths of an inch wider, one tenth taller and one tenth more narrow than the d750--hardly significant. On the other hand, the combined weight of the D500 with 16-80 is a half-pound lighter than that of the D750 with 24-120, which is also another eight tenths inch deeper.  I'd much rather travel with the D500 package.

As for the 16-80, here are some other viewpoints about it:

The 24-120 also gets mixed reviews. Other than being larger and heavier, I haven't found any advantage to it compared to the 16-80 on their respective cameras.
