Nikon 16-80mm vs 18-55 VR G II
1

I am about to purchase a D500 and am trying to decide on the kit with the 16-80mm vs body only. I already have the 18-55mm VR G II lens. While I'm sure the 16-80mm is the better lens, is it enough of an upgrade to justify spending the additional $600? (I am on a bit if a budget) I would be using it as a general walk around lens and also for landscapes and hopefully some astro. Any opinions would be appreciated!
