“Opinion on” is more widely used than “opinion about,” but both can be used.
1. My boss asked me about my opinion on the new plan.
2. I do not have an opinion on/about Global Warming.
“Opinion of” is usually used when we refer to the opinion(s) of a person or a group on someone or something.
1. I do not agree with the opinion of the court. (However, we also say, “What is your opinion of Rob?)
Sometimes, a simple rewrite can prevent preposition confusion:
Original sentence: Nobody cares about the opinion of the journalist on/about the candidate.
Rewrite: Nobody cares about the journalist’s opinion on/about the candidate.
