Is the all-in-all MS3 worth it?

All-in-All the MS3 does everything the MS2 does equally if not better. They are both very good single-point sling options, and can be easily converted to a decent two-point sling very quickly. The MS3’s new nylon webbing looks to be a better material choice and the new lockable ParaClips without a doubt provide better functionality.

What is the difference between the MS2 and MS3?

We can say Velcro doesn’t stick to it. The size of the adjustment loop on the MS3 is almost identical to the MS2, but the stiffer material of the MS3 makes it faster to find. In single-point mode the adjustment loop moves slightly smoother than the MS2 making it easier to tighten or loosen.
