    Thats zoom creeping.
    You can check with the company if they can make some dampening adjustments.

    * Else u can always improvise with tapes or rubber bands to control the creeping

    You can try find a thick rubber band ( beach road will have plenty of those ) and throw around the zoom ring with the barrel to prevent the focus creep.

    Not very elegant or convenient but simple cheap solution
    Servicing might cost abit more.
