I'm getting an Olympus mju 105 in mint condition for a good price. I already own an Olympus OM 10. Should i buy the mju or is it redundant?

I agree with Sumi, different cameras. The mju: is ideal for putting in a coat pocket and taking it with you. With the clam shell design you don't even need an additional case. Image quality is generally good with the mju: series cameras
The OM 10 is a full SLR and can get heavy when having it to carry all day long but has of course the advantages of a full SLR system with a wide range of lenses and accessoiries to chose from like flash guns, macro adapters and what else.
I like to carry a small film camera with me, especially on holidays.

Buy it, I guess. It's a p&s while the OM10 is a SLR. It's not redundant because the OM10 was designed for different uses. The OM10 allows for control over the image-making process, but it's bigger and heavier than the MJU105. The MJU105 is designed for when you don't want to lug around a big camera and for taking quick snapshots.
Olympus was a good camera. It's a shame they stopped making cameras.
