Hello, I am with ontherocks on this as well. Plus 7.6.0.1 will be patched to 7.6.0.2 shortly. Big benefit as 7.6.0.2 will add more support, like support for vSphere 5.5.

EDIT: 7.6.0.2 is now in GA: TECH214999

Even if you wait for 7.6.0.2, you'll first have to install 7.6.0.1 and then patch it to .2

And since there are several major gotchas and "this takes hours if not days to complete" listed in the 7.6 upgrade document, going to .1 now and then waiting for .2 may give you less of a headache unless you're specifically using 7.5.0.7 features and bug fixes that weren't included in 7.6.0.1.
