Some problems with zoom focus on movies

I just purchased the SX700, and was wondering if  there is something I am doing wrong when taking movies?  When I try to zoom in on a subject it stays in focus for about half way, and then it gets more and more distorted as I continue to zoom.  If I zoom in close, focus on a subject as though I'm taking a picture, then start the movie, it focuses just fine.  Do I have to do this each time I use the zoom for a movie?  I purchased this at a good camera shop in town, and they think it is probably a shortcoming of the camera... Any help is appreciated...
