    A question about "different from."

    Hi! Just a quick question.

    I know that we use "different from" to show a distinction between two things, but if we place a noun between "different" and from," does the meaning of the sentence change?

    For example:

    My opinion is different from his.

    I have a different opinion from his.

    Does the second sentence have the same meaning as the first?

    Thanks!
