It partially depends upon if you are walking Windows 7 or Windows 10.
The ISOs are the VL site aren’t current for Win 10. They are updated typically
when a version goes CBB (not sure what will happen in the future now that CBB
is no longer a thing though). It’s of course quite easy to update them using
DISM or offline servicing.
I still recommend a build and capture though to add things like the VC++
Runtimes. I’ve got a blog I’m preparing on creating a Windows 7 image as there
are still a lot of folks using Win 7.

Its interesting now that the Volume License site will have an updated ISO that
has the latest CU’s.
As much as I hate to say it, as I love setting up an MDT Build and Capture TS,
the value of doing that just went down, and there are many more scenarios where
using the ISO from your VL Site may make more sense.

The general consensus is your image should have:
1. All updates
2. Visual C++ Redistributables
3. .NET Updates
4. Office (if you have that)
Other than that, keep other things out of it. Most other things change
versions and such so often that it will be a pain to manage.
