mine will turn up later today but from the review I saw yesterday (video) the lockscreen did have a couple of widgets on it. There was a camera button bottom right and this particular review had the samsung tv app at the top of the lockscreen allowing him to adjust volume up and down and change channel.
Personally I don't have anything on my current S3 lockscreen other than the date and time but that's just me

That sucks you can't even get the camera. I think I'd just turn off the lock screen at that point. You could also look into an app that puts shortcuts into the notification dropdown--I did this for a flashlight app because I missed having it in my quick settings on my last custom rom.

Indeed. I can't understand why they would take them away. Even my GS3 had this.

I have the same issue and spoke to samsung live chat and they said "Unfortunately the Australian models of the S5 do not have the feature where you can add a camera shortcut to the Lock Screen."
This sucks, ive tried using 3rd party apps and the shortcuts still wont work!
Im with vodafone AU
