I would assume it all ships together in the same truck but I'm not 100% sure. So you should contact them just in case.

The way it works, Panasonic will first ship the pre-orders. Then they send an email to those that registered for the Sigma 45, and you respond with the serial number of the S5, and they send you Sigma lens.

So it is not clear with for situation with Amazon. A possible approach is to order a second S5 from someone showing earlier delivery, say B&H, and to register that order with Panasonic. Then after the earlier delivery ships, cancel the Amazon order.

A risk is that Panasonic may not accept the second registration. Another risk is that Amazon ships early and one ends up with two cameras. If I did this I'd place the second order by telephone to find out if the camera will really be shipped early. A conservative approach is to wait for Amazon.
