(I'm a scroll wheel user and a shift key user equally) Sometimes when i zoom in and out real fast either with scroll or shift, i can no longer zoom in to view ships from a distance. Like it just stops letting me zoom in or out. It goes 3rd person. This problem will last for about a minute and then i can zoom in just fine, but this really affects my game. ive died a couple of times cause of it. Its not my keyboard or mouse tho. Could this be a game issue? Anybody have this problem before? Solution?

I am just going to suggest checking your mouse drivers or perhaps seeing if your having input lag.

Can you scroll in a browser OK? If you can't then get a can of compressed air and blow out your mouse. When my scroll is acting up there usually is a piece of lint that's blocking the optical sensors in the mouse.

Replace the batteries in a wireless mouse and also reseat the sending unit.

Try another mouse -- do you have the same problem? If so, reinstall your drivers.

Run an integrity check and repair of the game.

Had my zoom freeze like this a occasionally  but usually goes back to normal. I have a different problem when I zoom by holding the right mouse  button and look around, when I release the RMB I am often aimed way high and off of my original aimpoint on a ship. Not sure if that is related.

I don't see similar reports or bugs currently.
Thanks everyone for a your suggestions in the topic, I'll also suggest checking these point before submitting a ticket:

Spoiler
  • delete modifications if you have any (you may also start game in a "Safe mode", check this with the right edge of "Play" button in WGCenter)
  • "check and repair" client via WGC >> Game Settings (This topic may be helpful with the first two points)  
  • delete your preferences.xml file in the game folder and set everything manually again with the next game launch 

If nothing works from them, even if it's a local issue my colleagues from support will for sure give you some usufull points to check and fix the issue. Before submitting please create WGCheck report and attach it to the ticket.
