Français: avis vs opinion?

Salut tout le monde,

I was just wondering what the difference in meaning and usage between "avis" and "opinion" was. If anyone can help, can you teach me?

Merci de votre attention,

I was wondering this myself and I found this thread.

Also, the explanations at Wiktionary of the old/middle french & latin words from which they originate (avis / opinion) seem to me to be saying much the same thing.

I hope it helps,

As a native french speaker, I don't see any difference between them.
