Speed vs. Stabilization in handheld still pictures

I've read the formulas for calculating proper speed to reduce camera shake.  My question that I haven't really seen fleshed out is how comparable to OSS (or other branded Image Stabilization) is that rule while shooting handheld?

If I have a 56mm prime, and I shoot at 84mm and up with a Sony APSC body, would that be the same as if I had an OSS lens?  (all things the same and speaking ONLY about still pictures, not video).

Would this change if I bumped the speed to 200 or 300?

I'm trying to decide if I can just replace the lens with a non OSS lens... or if I need to replace the camera with one that has IBIS to be able to get sharper lenses.

Thanks for any feedback and discussion.
