Movement of camera over time

Im using the code below to try and move the camera from one location to another however it also changes the x and z values, what is best way to change a camera say from y 10 to 0.5 over 2 seconds, thanks!
update: It works as expected when the camera has no parent, when its the child of a player controller, the x and z are changed.

public class CameraZoom : MonoBehaviour {

	public float startY=10f;
	public float speedSecs=12f;
	public float ynow=0;
	private Vector3 updatePos;
	private Vector3 startPos;

	void awake() {


	// Use this for initialization
	void Start () {
		startPos = (Vector3.up * startY);
		updatePos =(Vector3.up * 0.5f);
	// Update is called once per frame
	void Update () {


	void FixedUpdate() {
		if ( ynow<speedSecs) {
			Debug.Log ("camera update! " + Mathf.Lerp(startY,  0.5f, ynow));
			ynow += Time.deltaTime;

			transform.position = ( Vector3.Lerp(startPos , updatePos, ynow/speedSecs));

I solved this myself, I changed transform.position to transform.localPosition
