Is it HVL-F20 flash worth to buy for NEX 5N?

I am not sure whether HVL-F20 flash would be better than the original flash for the NEX 5N. This camera has excellent low light performance even indoors with the supplied flash. However I am not sure if the optional flash with bounce option would be really useful for group portraits indoors. Please help me to decide because I have not seen any photos taken with the HVL-F20 using for example the Sigma 30mm lens (I am also planning to buy it but not sure because it has no OSS so that flash or tripod are mandatory for indoor use!).

would it be better to build or buy a diffuser for the kit flash? Any suggestions?
