Should I upgrade Exchange '10 to '13 or go straight to '16?

We have several small Exchange '10 servers (under 100 mailboxes) and are thinking about upgrading to a newer version of Exchange.  '16 has been out for a few weeks and presumably some of you have gone from '10 to '16, so is it safe to make that jump, or should we go to '13 and wait a few months before going to '16?  I've seen people say Exchange '16 is basically Exchange '13 SP2, which makes it seem like it should be less-scary to go up two Exchange versions.

(There are several old threads about this, but the most recent one I could find is from July.)
