Examples:

"Apple's purpose has always been to empower the users of its wares. 'People are inherently creative. They will use tools in ways the toolmakers never thought possible,' once opined Steve Jobs, the computer maker's late co-founder." — The Economist, 27 Nov. 2021

Opine is not a back-formation of opinion. Both words come from Middle French opiner, meaning "to express one's opinion," and Latin opīnārī, "to have in mind" or "to think." And they were thought up as words for the English language independently at different times.
