I want to get the new 2019 MBP 16" and I expect to pay $2900-3300

I do lot of heavy editing on Lightroom, I want to get into making short 4k videos (<10 min) on Premiere with my Sony a7iii & DJI Drone; other than that I use my laptop for browsing, Netflix, microsoft word.

I'm considering
#1 --- 1TB + 2.3GHz 8 core i9 + 32 GB + AMD 5500M 4GB = $3200
#2 --- 512GB
+ 2.6GHz 6 core i7 + 32 GB + AMD 5500M 4GB = $2900

Is #1 overkill for what I'm doing? I'm not expecting to do any professional video production and am ok with 512 GB & external hard drives.

Which processor? 2.6GHz 6 Core i7 / 2.3GHz 8 core i9 / 2.4GHz i9
Which RAM/Memory? 16GB / 32GB / 64GB
Which Graphics card? AMD 5300M 4GB / AMD 5500M 4GB / AMD 5500M 8GB
